It’s a a bit like having a team getting ready for the premiership and your striker’s soul being taken away. He was by far our best horse, the others have to make the jump still. He handled all types of ground, he ran in the Dewhurst on soft when we were nearly not going to run him. He got into traffic trouble on soft ground and still only just got beat and looked very unlucky.
He might be gutted, but O’Brien never misses an opportunity to get his hype in.
I was really looking forward to seeing how good HRE would be as a 3yo and the idea that he and Teo might turn into superstars was one of the most appealing features of a coming flat season where really outstanding horses look thin on the ground.
