Adrenaline crazed idiots

Not sure how I feel about this one: the most dangerous horse race in the world. The Omak Suicide Race. (RealPlayer)

You'd have to be nuts. Certainly the guy who falls off doesn't look entirely sane...

Apparently 15 horses have died as a result of this race since 1965. This has animal activists up in arms. By contrast, here are some statistics on the condoned and publicly supported Grand National Steeplechase.

Food for thought...
