The death of top race horse Twist Magic, who fell and broke a leg at Newbury yesterday (Wednesday), has hit national headlines. But his destruction is far from unusual. A horse dies almost every day on British racecourses. In fact, there was a second death of a horse yesterday, which received no mention in the national press. The unknown fatality was Gilsland, who collapsed and died at Bangor racecourse.

The British Horseracing Authority has refused over many years to make public the names and numbers of horses who are killed. Therefore, in 2007, Animal Aid launched an online database dedicated to exposing the high number of fatalities. Since that time, nearly 600 horses have perished on racecourses
