    Poor horse. Why did connections bother with racing it at all?
    Ran 5 times over hurdles at odds between 100/1 and 300/1 and completed only twice, being beaten 66 and 90 lengths respectively. Those races weren’t at top tracks, rather at smaller provincial tracks like Hexham or Cartmel.
    Now, when a horse is 300/1 at such a track, you probably know that it shouldn’t be racing at all. However the owner seems to like such horses, as he also owns/owned Wandover which ran five times in her career and only beat one horse in those races. Staring prices again in that usual range 66/1, 150/1 and 200/1.

    That can’t be fun for horse, rider or owner….

    Rest in peace Jukebox Blues
