They say never work with animals or children, but some of the finest sporting events of our time have come via a racecourse. Horse racing, especially in the UK, has no shortage of fans and the Grand National is a national hunt racing event that the nation has taken to its heart. Dog racing has its fair share of followers too.
But what of the rest of the Animal Kingdom? Is anyone up for Panda Pool or Salamander Snooker? Jack Russell Rugby? Well, possibly we’ll have to wait a while for those, but I did today read of a Pig Racing event in Norfolk called the Ham National! The event, part of the Royal Norfolk Show sounds like a right royal riot! Where else do you get to see Justin Bieboar take on Elvis Pigsley?
