It was a very heavy fall, landed on his neck, and the only consolation, if consolation is the right word, was he died instantly. The jockey realised straight away he had gone and he was distraught.
Being a family day it wasn’t the best thing to happen, especially, as those who know Fontwell will know, as the last fence does attract very large crowds, including families. There were a few tears around the place.
Thanks Paul. How anyone can have a bet even an hour before the first race is beyond me. Its absolutely ridiculous at this stage. I shall email Fontwell tomorrow, hopefully I’ll get a response (unlike Fakenham).
