Imagine she was lame the night before and gave her the night to see if she improved….obviously didnt. Sounds like it could be something like stone bruise or a little knock as she is not confirmed to be out for the season. If thats the case they probably gave her as much time as possible before announcing it. Gutted for the trainer.
she has pulled the muscles accross her back quite badly…she is lucky thats all she got away with….
she got cast in her box, which is when a horse rolls and rolls over onto the wall and they are stuck…most cases need humands to tie ropes on legs and sit on the head to pull the horse away the wall, this cases less injury..but if this happens in the night, when no one is about, then they tend to thrash about and kick ten tons out of the walls, and more than likely do spinal and leg injurys or just lie there and dehydrate and this is not good….also this stresses them badly…

The layers of CW that night should be investigated IMO. Irrespective of whether or not Maguire gave her the night to see if she improved, that’s not the story that came out the next day. He said that he came into the stable that morning and she was lame so she is out. If he knew the night previously then he should have informed somebody rather than let some people hoover up all the money going on the exchanges.
If Maguire knew the night before I am sure his first concern was the welfare of Celestial Wave . Is he supposed to drop everything and say "Oh Dear I must remember the Betfair ante-post muppets and inform the press association immediately"
If you play the ante post markets you must accept the risks that go with it.
