Non PC,REALLY? Never thought of my race creed or colour as a matter of PRIDE,was just NORMAL.......e.g no choice of parentage,location of conception or birth.Only recently become VERY proud of being Caucasian,hetero and born in the United Kingdom,now supposed to be ASHAMED of heritage and history?

What next,Godolphin and The Darley Arabian wiped from history by white racist Brits who dislike Arabs? English,Irish,American,French BREDS etc all come from 3 sources which includes the Byerley Turk.

Ever heard of a single horse going to protest as part of a mob because of ancestory? Neither have I and when I hear the term "Herd mentality" I feel like puking,packs,herds etc are usually cohesive groups,the exception seems to be flocks and even they seem passive.Too deep or complicated for the forum?Wink

Err, no. Moreover it's just mind-numbingly boring, meaningless nonsense. Now go and play in the corner with your imaginary friend molerat.

Actually the thoroughbred descends from more like 40 middle eastern imports,the others are still represented through female lines. The 3 you have quoted are the only ones whose male lines survived for any time. Unfortunately 2 of those look likely to die out,if not in my lifetime,then in the next 30 years. Then presumably people will say that all thoroughbreds just descend from the Darley Arabian.

salmon that's the most interesting post I've read on here for ages ;it's certainly worthy  its own discussion thread.

Wonder will they stop doing that race for only grey horses, seeing as there's no black or brown  horses in it?

We should be ashamed of letting Sheikh Mohammed into the country, let alone on a racecourse, let alone lauding him as a virtuous icon ....Remember the documentary where he hunted down his daughters - one of them had got to just off the coast of India - when all they wanted was to have their freedom to live their own lives outside of Dubai, and now neither has been heard of since. An evil, nasty pernicious tyrannic despot, in my opinion - not only him but all his Godolphin operation should be banned forever from all our racecourses ....

In the southern states of America, they have a race problem like nowhere else in the world.
My brother-in-law visited family in the states a few years ago and the ring tone on their phone was “Nig-er, Nig-er, Niig-er.
Absolutely shocking.

This happened yesterday outside a Wendy’s take-away.  :-

Can you imagine two English policemen shooting a man dead after he had failed a breathalyzer test, for whatever reason?

Forefront in their minds should have been the problems the shooting of George Floyd has caused.

Anyone who burns their own national flag is a disgrace. Treason

Ali one of the greatest speakers against justice refused to go to war.

But never would he burn the flag like this lot today.

As the flag means more than any of us.

This is what is called democratic,freedom of speech? Diversion of a thread for what benefit btw?

Salmon Spray picks up with relevant questions and makes the first two look like a pair of stone cast muppets?

Couldn't agree more, Glentoby.

For a democracy to function, we need diversity.  Diversity of opinion. And thats not what we're getting right now :
