    Very sad

    hate to point the finger at a 7lb claimer without knowing the cause of death, but the horse won by 22 lengths on good/good to firm & it was the hottest day of the year so far.

    I have just watched the replay and have to say I don’t think the jockey gave him a hard time. The huge winning distance was mainly due to all the others suddenly going nowhere after the last. And the horse (IMHO) didn’t show any signs of distress/exhaustion as they walked off the course.

    Just a terribly sad tragedy, and a bad end for a good horse. RIP U B Careful :cry:

    Fingers crossed we don’t have that sort of weather for the National. I have wondered sometimes whether throwing buckets of cold water over them when they’re hot would put a strain on their hearts?
