    Pulled up on the 16th at Plumpton, fatally injured

    Every time I see a horse being pulled up at Plumpton, I always fear the worst. Especially when it happens down the far side. I think the downhill run is just too fast for many horses and that’s why most of the injuries occur on that part of the course. To make things worse there is that Betfair forum which is almost always insulting to horse and jockey. Aidan Coleman could do no more, but to pull up the horse, yet the conspiracy theorists came out suggesting it was done on purpose. Of course it was you morons, since the horse was badly injured.

    May he rest in peace

    Rest in peace poor Soldiers Hill.
    You gave all you had today and your jockey looked after you well in your final moments.

    To the sick posters on the Betfair Forum hang your heads in shame.

    I couldn’t agree more Ex-Ruby. I think Internet forums are the refuge of the bigot and the bully. Why people see the need to be so vitriolic about people whom they do not know and about occurrences they can only speculate on is beyond me.

    Plus the social media comments relating to Rishi Persad are downright deplorable…
