    Fell at the second last when tailed off in the Kerry National.

    Didn’t know the fall was as bad. RIP Barra; sadly she didn’t look to enjoy her last two races. I suppose jockeys like to complete for the sake of getting the mark down (and on the off chance that a multiple pileup or huge pace collapse in front gifts them the race) but that’s the kind of thing that the amateurs got blasted for doing in the NH chase even when they had a more realistic chance of placing. She wasn’t exhausted and the jockey wasn’t thrashing her, but she was getting scrubbed along out the back for quite a way.
