PHOTOS OF THE DAY

Clydesdales

According to Horse & Hound: Move over thoroughbreds, there’s a new breed of racehorse in town. Well maybe not quite, but on Sunday (24 November) 5 Clydesdales (only 900 worldwide) showed off their speed as they thundered down the track in a special one-off charity race at Exeter racecourse. The big draft horses battled it out to a photo finish. Shires had their turn at Heavy Horse racing earlier this year at Lingfield. (Malcolm Snelgrove Photo)
