Not following horse racing I was taken aback this morning when I accidentally clicked on a 'horse racing article' and read that a Binocular shock has wobbled the world of horse racing.
Admittedly I didn't read the whole article but I did gather, from scanning it, that the Binocular in question has been removed for further tests and investigations.
I can only assume the lenses were not in alignment causing the wrong horse to be declared a winner by one of the officials.
Obviously with tiny men and large amounts of money riding on these events (no pun intended) - everything has to be checked out.
Personally I would have thought that in this electronic age, binoculars would have lost their appeal many years ago.
