    So sad, when they’re just starting out on their jumping career. RIP.

    He was pulling and very enthusiastic and seemed to me to overjump and not get the landing gear down in time – he slithered some distance on his nose … not sure what his injuries were. Commentator Mike Cattermole said something like horse and rider seem to be up OK – but the screens were so obviously up on next circuit and on the replay his sad loss wasn’t even mentioned – bad form Racing UK!! RIP lovely young grey man.
    :cry: :cry: :cry:

    Here’s the article. Does bring a slight lump to the throat.

    Makes me have a VERY BIG lump in my throat …
    :cry: :cry: :cry:
    I can’t understand Mike C saying what he did as apparantly the poor horse broke a shoulder, struggled and couldn’t get up …

    That’s a terribly sad article :cry: I hope there is not a jinx on horses that are highlighted as young talent – ie Hidden Keel.

    The comments section notes that Saddlers Risk also died but there was no mention. Nothing on here either. What happened?

    RIP to both of them :cry: and condolences to all connections.

    Read the 3rd post down in the comments underneath the article. Sorry, I don’t know any more than that.

    PS – sorry again. Having re-read it through a couple of times I think I may have misunderstood. Got hold of the wrong end of the "persuader" :oops:

    I think the comment is just badly worded, i.e. the user wanted to put a comment about the demise of Monty on the RP article about Sadler’s Risk winning

    ‘I wanted to leave a post on the article about Saddlers Risk why no mention of this horse’s demise was made? All equine deaths should be acknoweldged not just the top horse’
