I am pleased to see that people were already removing their horses from his stables pre the ban.

How different could the following story be that clearly shows trainer Colin Tizzard has far more respect for his horses as he retires superstar Thistlecrack to enjoy his retirement, having earned nearly £750,000 in his illustrious career:

When trainers are working in an industry that's already seen the deaths of 30 horses this year, it's hard to see how any of them can be said to have 'respect' for their horses:

They claim to love their horses but that lad showed absolutely no respect, when his poor horse was wrecked and dead he sat on him and thought it was so good he put it on twitter, he is disgusting and I think he is just the fool that got caught, I think they all do it - he should have got jail.

I totally agree choux, that he posted this or it was posted just shows that some in the horse racing industry think this is just normal behaviour, that if was so controversial and shocking to anyone else highlighted what disgraceful disrespect these people have for the beautiful animals that pays their mortgages and affords them the good life they lead. A 'normal' person would not do this to a beloved animal like a dog or cat they lose, it would be mindless behaviour (I cannot get my head around his thinking on this one )
