The Anonymous Widower

What Would Happen If We Banned Steeplechasing?

Many believe that the Grand national and all steeplechasing should be banned.

I don’t!

But what would happen if we did ban it?

All our major races would probably move to Ireland or if the Scottish government decided not to ban it, to Scotland.

They would be overjoyed and some places in the UK, like Liverpool and Cheltenham, would lose quite a few jobs and lots of income.

But life in this country would lose one of its great spectacles. Soon horse racing would be reduced to a shadow of its former self, with probably only all-weather racing on the flat surviving.

I do think sometimes, that the various antis in all sorts of areas, have one aim in their mind; to take all the fun out of our lives.

If a man has never made love to a woman, who’s wearing nothing but a fur coat, he’s never lived! Incidentally, it wasn’t C’s coat either and it was at a two hour break in proceedings in a Catholic wedding.
