Here is an interesting 7 minute documentary of Emily Davison, a radical British Suffragette. Her protest at the 1913 Epsom Derby cost her her life.

Thought it might be of interest since it combines two things that Off Topic posters have in common -- horse racing and politics. :)

I heard about this but don't remember seeing the video.

It was interesting, Highnote. :ThmbUp:

The "original" Artax. But at least she didn't try to punch the horse.

I forgot all about that guy trying to punch Artax.

I bet Artax in the BC Sprint at Gulfstream. He ran it in something like 1:07 and change. He could fly!
