The reliably unreliable Quds News Network has posted this video of “A Palestinian horse” that “won an old racing for horses in 1950.”
But as you can see from the video (also viewable here in case deleted), the so-called “Palestinian horse” is really just a horse named “Palestine”!
Palestine (1947–1974) was a British Thoroughbred racehorse. Owned and bred by Aga Khan III he was out of the mare Una and sired by Fair Trial.
Trained by Marcus Marsh and ridden by Charlie Smirke, Palestine was the winner of the 2000 Guineas in 1950.
They really are clutching at
hay straws aren’t they?
