Amazing dedication to a friend: A horse gets stuck up to his neck in mud on a beach as the tide rises. His owner, Nicole Graham, who was enjoying an afternoon ride, stayed with him as rescuers struggled for three hours to pull him out. Astro was finally freed with the help of a tractor and harness at Avalon Beach in Geelong, Victoria, Australia
What a way to go! Frank made into the Guinness book of records as the first and only deceased jockey to win a race. The name of the thoroughbred mare he rode "Sweet Kiss" was then nicknamed "Sweet Kiss of Death" and was retired, never to race again.
