Grand National - Who's Having a Flutter?

In the News

No Negative Comments about the sport of horse racing please

I'm running a sweepstake for work and have 2 horses in that, plus I've put a few bets on with Ladbroke's, as has my husband.

Think we've got 16 different runners between us, so fingers crossed one of them will come home!!

Got a couple of quid on Takingrisks each way at 22/1

MrsChimp is normally pretty good at getting at least a place, so I'll be putting a bet on for her when she gets back

We usually all pick out horses for the Grand National and my partner will put a bet on for us. He’s done it online this year. Just a bit of fun really. 🤞

Good Luck, hope you get a winner🙂

When I was in the office, a colleague used to organised a sweepstake, which I used to take part in, but I haven't put a bet on since Lockdown.

And there was me thinking that it was going to be either a Skelton winner or a Mullins. Good on her she totally smashed it with a Bromhead. 😎

Why did you say no negative comments lol.

If you want to discuss something, then people may say they don’t like the sport. You should be able to accept that.

Ann1984 i also cannot stand horse races having witnessed a horse with badly dislocated leg being put down in front of me when at a horse race with family as a child. Haunts me until today and I cannot watch anything on tv related to horses.

Ann1984 I didn't edit it. I put that in at the beginning. And who is "she" - the Queen Mother?!!

I said no negative comments because I wanted a discussion about betting on the race, not whether people think the race is cruel or not which is a completely different discussion.

No winner for me or MrsChimp ☹️

Well done to Rachael Blackmore, the first woman jockey to win the Grand National.
