    This is so so sad to read … I feel sick thinking about it. WHY was the flat racer put in a hurdle race – and seemingly unprepared for it ??? Will any questions be asked of the trainer? What injury did he have???

    Oh no really sorry to hear this … I was watching and it was an x rated last fence fall … he’s run so many times with only one fall ever I think before this …

    What do you think about mounted horse catchers (like at point-to-points) – they can get to riderless horses and help them with a fellow equine who may be distressed and help to calm them …

    Racing post says he clipped heels … I don’t like watching flat racing as they go so much faster and tend to be very bunched up – their jockeys don’t seem to bother about how close they are as they look for the smallest gap to get through …

    Totally sickening … I wasn’t watching but my stomach is churning at the thought … poor boy … and his connections, particularly lass/lad … this is getting really out of hand now …

    I’m so glad I was busy on a zoom meeting so I missed this.
    Another one with a great record of completion and her first ever fall … so sad …
    Moehat I’m with you on that one – can’t put her out of my mind.
    EnniskeaneFlame I could have written that – I can’t understand why so many like you say just lobbing along and a leg breaks …

    I was watching and she was at the back, went right down sideways on her shoulder – like she didn’t get the undercarriage out … could be seen struggling to get up … desperately hoped she was OK …

    Poor lad … nasty fall … I saw him trying to get up and so hoped he would. Once more I heard no mention on Racing TV and nothing in race reports … much sympathy for those who loved and cared for him.

    How would we have felt if Shishkin had just been withdrawn from his race with no explanation? Where was it reported that poor Brilliant had died? She was obviously thought to be talented enough to run in a Classic and I’m surprised Coolmore didn’t issue a statement – and I wish they had to show they actually cared? She had raced 10 times for them and won £80k+ …

    Can’t believe he’s gone … another outstanding hero. Very hard to watch this at the moment. Kilbeg King also lost in next race.
