Ah that’s horrid. I’ve been checking around since the race as I backed NHH and ovb watched him tumble, I feared the worst when he fell. I just asked on another thread if anyone knew if he was alright as I could not see anything about him anywhere. I hoped he’d got up.
I backed Sandsend as a saver in the County too. Bad day.
NHH was the worse end for me – let alone all the people closely connected to the horse. There are a few horses that win a place in your heart and he was one of them for his performances at cheltenham. Backed Killbricken Storm in the 3rd race and i’d give it all up and more to watch NHH get up and canter away.
We have to accept the risks but it doesn’t make it any easier
