    So the biggest horse racing event is today at 4.15!
    Have any of my fellow Brits placed bets?

    I have £2.50 each way on Threefortea
    £2.50 each way on On His Own
    and £5 each way on Always Waining!
    All fixed odds about a week ago.

    I'm not a gambling man but have won on the national and the gold cup the last 3 years in a row!
    I got my son to point to any one of the 40 horses and he picked Quel Esprit at 60-1 lol I put 50p E/W.

    I haven't cuz I think the Grand National is just utterly stupid. I honestly don't see the fuss over it.

    Saying that, I do wonder how much money my dad's bets are. He likes gambling.

    If I was a gambling man I'd go for 2. I reckon 2 horses are going to be killed this year.

    Well a few years back everyone in our family put £1 on a random horse we liked. The horse that won had odds of 100/1 and my dad had placed his bet on it. :D Had a nice chinese that night and put the rest towards a new TV.

    I think if you tot up all the deaths in this century (i.e 13 years) it averages out at 3 deaths per year.

    No deaths this year! Teaforthree was in the lead until the last jump then came third!
    I should just about my money back lol as the payout drops per place.

    Congrats Thug. Each-way on Teaforthree, dunno what your odds were though. :P

    We had a few bets going, (including teaforthree) but not each-way - didn't win anything. :( Only spent £6 and it was some fun so doesn't really matter.

    That's complete bollocks Gahars. They end up in all of our cheaply-produced meat such as meatballs and Iceland dinners.
