Are they just going to melt them down for the silver? :(

That Grand National trophy (for the Grand National, not the American one) is particularly unfortunate to lose. Sergeant Murphy was the first American-owned horse to win the race.

Degenerate filth. If melting them down is the plan, they'll try to do it quickly as it is then virtually untraceable.

Pure scum. Just disgusting...
