    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.

    Both of them were running great races, very sad.

    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

    Sad to hear this. I didn’t see the race and didn’t know about the falls. A bad festival week for deaths; that’s five (plus two at other courses during the four days). :negative:

    What an awful way to end the festival. Thoughts with all those who knew or loved Some Plan, Dresden and North Hill Harvey, as well as the others lost this week.

    The Grand Annual has had 4 deaths since 2012 (three this year). The Grand National hasn’t had any in that time.

    It’s a horrendous race to watch, the jockeys don’t like riding in it because of the speed they go at, the field size is too big; something needs to change.
