    My racing inexperience comes to the fore here, but what injury did/does Azertyioup (sp?) have to cause him to be retired?

    hi he struck into his tendon on the last race when narrowly beaton by wellcheif.he was treated and nursed back to health for 16months, and was fit to return, however returned to training and sustained a new injuery on same leg, so it was deceided to let him retire on a high rather than ending on a low,  rather than return not his true champion self, he is dearly looked after and loved, and nearly ready to go out to grass, and god knows he deserves it………….:biggrin:

    was he fired?

    No

    unless it was for misconduct, i think he deserved to keep his place in the stable

    :biggrin:

    clivex, im not sure if your pulling my leg! but firing is a method used to ‘mend’ the tendon involving hot metal irons held against the leg

    was the same leg,but he didunt need to prove himself anymore, so no he wasent fired as he wouldent be happy if he wasent to be back at the top,he went out a true champ and now hes getting treated like a king and soon go out to holidaying in the feild, will put pic up here at some point,was very sad to take him to cheltenham as  he wanted to race and did not want to leave the track, but he had a nice day out, and was happy to see all the people with pats for him x

    beckster what on earth does firing have to do with whether he would be happy being back at the top?

    his injury was very low down in his deep flexor tendon by his angular ligament so could not be fired! He was in great order when he went back to Pauls he had been up Heather Daltons gallops and had a clear scan, i dont know what happened but he only lasted 7 days when he received his new injury!!!!!! He should never have run at sandown he was telling you he wasnt right at cheltenham but it was out of my hands i tried!!!!!!!!!        <br>

    So do you think his injury was a result of having a hard season then? i thought Paul would put him away after he ran at cheltenham. <br>is he just going to be a pet now, or is he going to learn a new trade?
