2 horses robbed in a day can’t be coincidence....seething if you’d backed either.

cant be that hard to have a portable rail there surely, racing is so archaic it beggars belief

just a thought but probably the horse doesnt even see a flimsy bit of tape racing @30 mph plus

I had no bet in either race and watched both races.  This is not a freak accident - the horses can't see the tapes (esp in the sun) and follow the rails - its a joke really!

they need to remove the rail that is dolled off as it must be attracting the horses eye and thinking that is the line to run to

If they can put up screens in 30 seconds to stop people seeing dead horses, they can put up screens in 30 seconds to stop horses seeing dead ends.

The tout selling tickets caused that..

The problem might be the turning rail rather than the lack of a straight rail. Might be able to do without that entirely. Cheltenham is far from the only track where part of the run in is without railing.
By:

I think this sort of thing would happen more without any railing

I can't think of many tracks where the entrance to the back straight is before the run in

The funny thing is, there was a bloke in orange holding the ribbon in the first instance, who was swearing blue murder over it - they had dispensed with him by the time of the second.

When: 26 Oct 18 17:29
I think it's as Custom Cut says. A similar thing happened at Newmarket some years ago in a stayers race on the Rowley mile course when a couple of the runners went to follow the rail that leads off it down the July course a few furlongs after the start - the winner, Tungsten Strike, and, I think, Massife Centrale who was following him. Sept 2004.

When: 26 Oct 18 17:35
I think Customcut makes a good point about the turning rail. Looks like those two horses just followed it round and disregarded the tape (thats what they do day after day....follow the rail) . The smack/s on their right flank maybe added to the horse making that decision as well.
