There is often concern over the welfare of the horses that take part in the most famous horse race in the world – the Grand National at Aintree.

But the good news is that shortly after the races yesterday evening all 38 runners in the Grand National are back in the stables, it has been reported.

26 horse and rider combinations failed to finish the showpiece event at the Liverpool racecourse.

There was concern for Saint Are as many onlookers thought the horse was fatally injured as a jockey waved other competitors past the scene.

It has been reported that he is currently being looked at by vets, reports the Daily Mirror.

A green screen was erected around another winded horse as only 12 horses finished the race - which was won by Tiger Roll.

Since the year 2000, 11 horses have died in the Grand National. Seven died between 2000 and 2010, and four between 2010 and 2017.

Saint Are - a 12-year-old Bay Gelding - was ridden by Ciaran Gethings but fell at the infamous Chair fence.

Many viewers were left shaken by what they saw - with many thinking a horse had died.

However reports confirm that Saint Are is being looked over and is said to be in a stable condition after falling on the 15th.

All 37 other horses are said to have 'no concerns.'...READ MORE
