A friend in Victoria sent me these shots of a horse race there yesterday that went wrong, this flock of gulls stopped the race, one jockey has a broken arm and others have minor injuries or need MRIs for possible neck damage. Pretty awesome sight though. The race was declared void.

Thats what I thought:-) The powers that be in racing over there are in a meeting right now to work out how to prevent it happening again, perhaps racing earlier in the day (the seagulls come in to the area in the afternoon), or maybe some kind of noise that would not put off the horses but will scare the birds off, I just saw the video footage on Tv, amazing, five jockeys in hospital.

OMG - that is incredible, and more than a bit scary!
