    Harness raced marred by accidents ends on an insane driverless horse going in opposite direction hitting other horse and driver heads-on. Sadly, both horses are no longer with us.

    Sitting 6 feet behind a horses anus with your legs spread wide open, traveling at 50 mph on 10-speed bicycle wheels doesn't seem like a very well informed decision to make

    The announcer had no emotion. It reminded me of space shuttle Columbia. The rocket blew into a thousand pieces but the announcers voice stayed the same

    No shit (hopefully). :c
    Yeah the whole idea is a recipe for disaster. I saw one years ago...some guy has a heart attack during the race, falls off his buggy onto the track, and gets plowed by a few of the assholes behind him. :facepalm:

    That is both very sad and very hilarious.

    He's probably numb to it. The StL track used to have harness racing. A couple of bad accidents and the track decided it wasn't worth it.

    This sorta makes me miss Luck on HBO. It was cancelled because a couple horses died while filming. Well, that and nobody was watching.
