Supposedly the Horse called 'Good Friday' fell in a steeple chase race on a Saturday
AHA !! Rather than a Biblical conundrum, this is looking like one of thosequiz questions that always gets a groan from the assembled quizzerswhen the answer is revealed. The '…Good Friday' referred to isactually the name of a racehorse. I don't know when or even if thehorse had a fall on a Saturday but it certainly fell on Boxing Day,the 26th December in 1899 during a race at Wolverhampton, England.Boxing Day was actually on a Tuesday in 1899 but assuming it is thesame horse its fall on a Saturday must be within just a few yearseither side of 1899 as a horse's racing career is not aparticularly long one. I believe there is a similar question something along the lines of'when did midsummer land on easter day' - a similar event where onehorse landed on top of another that had already fallen after a jumpduring a race - I cant remember the actual names but you get theidea.
