Quote: from sandpiper on 3:34 pm on April 15, 2007[br]I am pleased someone started this thread, as my immediate reaction yesterday was "why was a horse that had done so much for the owners been sold" ??
Surely Silver Birch had earned the owners enough money to keep it in carrots in retirement, if it did have heart trouble and bad legs as has been stated in the Press.
Makes a mockery of all these phrases that are churned out by owners…"that they will be looking after the horse"…not in this case.
Pleased as punch for the Irish connections…I hope Silver Birch manages to win again for them.
Accoridng to newspaper reports today, the horse was sold to fund a divorce settlement.
