    I wonder if someone can help me here.

    A mate of mine has an ante post voucher on Kerstino Two for the Grand National.

    Today he heard a rumour that the horse had injured himself on the gallops and has been destroyed. I can’t find any mention of this anywhere.

    Does anyone know anything? Is it true or is it someones sick idea of a joke?

    Sadly, he broke a pastern and had to be destroyed.

    Terrible news, a lovely horse and a great loss to his connections. :(

    He had already established himself as the standard-bearer at Charlie Longsdon’s nascent training operation and was a totally reformed character from the one that usually belted a few on the way round in running up ordinary hunters’ chase form last winter.

    His Sandown win added another dimension to him, namely handling really bad ground effectively, and I was very much looking forward to him trying his luck at Cheltenham and Aintree no matter what the ground did. A desperate, desperate shame.

    Oh that’s so sad.
