After the tragic and bizarre circumstances of two horses being electrocuted at Newbury racecourse, you would have thought that phrases like; 'spectators were shocked or stunned' would be avoided but oh no. The above is from the Telegraph.
This morning on BBC local news - South Today - a trainer said he was shocked by events, and Sky Sports News just now has interviewed the trainer, Nicky Henderson, of Kid Cassidy a horse that survived, who's just said he's stunned by what he saw. And a commentator on SkySports here says he was 'shocked' (1:25 mins in).
