    How is it frustrating? You know who is jocked up before you choose to back it or not.

    My point ‘Peruvian Chief’ is that in Horse Racing its hoped that the jockey on board your horse has at least some basic tactical knowledge and learns from previous mistakes where they’ve been made. Based on todays race that wasn’t evident. The horse clearly has some ability though I doubt this will continue under current arrangements. Safe to say I’ve learned a lesson and won’t touch anything she is on in future! It might be useful if Miss Walton views Claire Hart’s jockeyship on Palypso De Creek in the very next race…

    It’s only my opinion but I think if a horse dies on the racecourse & not as the result of either a heart attack or a fall, then questions need to be asked.

    Four in a day is absurd. Especially two on the same part of the racecourse.

    Did I hear correctly that Charger got up after his fall? That looked a bad one.

    I heard Kevin O’Ryan on ATR say that Charger got up after a while and was OK. As you say, at the time it didn’t look too promising so some good news there at least.

    I just think with some of the racecourses in IrelandNI, you automatically expect incidents to happen because of the way the courses are laid out. Tipperary and Downpatrick are two that spring to mind. I know horses are fragile at the best of times but anything feasible that can be done on the course to try and reduce fatalities, should be done in my opinion.
