    Short form

    Hello,

    I know that when we want to make a short form for the following sentence:

    "The horse, which was running, won the race"

    We get the following:

    "The running horse won the race"

    But what do we get when making a short form for the following:

    "The horse, which was NOT running, won the race"


    Thank you v.much

    It seems like an odd thing to want to say(!) but:

    The non-running horse won the race.
