Jockeyless horse left devastated after believing he’d won Grand National

A horse that crossed the finish line first at today’s Grand National was left devastated after being told he did not win the race.

Al Capony lost his jockey Johnny McEvoy at the second fence during the big race at Aintree but continued to run the full course, crossing the line a full 50 lengths ahead of I Am Maximus in second place.

However, horses that lose their jockeys are immediately disqualified and I Am Maximus was crowned the winner. Al Capony was furious after being told the news and said he was sure he had won.

“This is bullshit!” said Al. “Nobody told me anything about having to carry your jockey over the line. If I knew that I would’ve went back for the little prick.”

Capony said he was back in his stable celebrating when he heard a commentator on the radio saying Paul Townend had just won the Grand National on I Am Maximus.

“I thought I was hearing things. I mean seriously. It’s not fair. It’s called a horse race, not a horse and jockey race. I was so far ahead of I Am Maximus I almost lapped the c*nt.

“And what’s all this nonsense about Paul Townend winning the race? Did he run around the course jumping over fences while having his arse whipped? Did he f**k! A horse won the race. At least get that bit right. Humans are such dickheads!”
