    Was it on the road crossing or just before that? The replay has been edited so not sure.

    We got through 5 days of racing at Ascot with a large amount of runners everyday without a single fatality. 4 in 1 day at the same meeting is disgraceful

    Summer jumping not for me

    Boom the groom has been retired following his run today.

    Glad to see him go out in one piece

    It looked like it happened going over the road crossing, I’ve seen plenty of breakdowns on them crossings at lots of different tracks. Maybe something the BHA need to look into ?

    Such a shame, running in and winning decent class 2 races to being sent out for 3 grand in a class 6 at Bath.

    He’s shown nothing in a while, he deserved a happy retirement

    The screens were for Ben Bromley who I think was stood down for the day, I saw the horse on the 2nd circuit near the screens but not behind

    Just fatally injured would be fine or some sort of weekly update like they do in Ireland.

    Richard Hoiles who is normally very good at keeping people updated about horses who are pulled up/fallers didn’t say anything about the injury which was very obvious.

    I thought he would leave at some point but was hoping he got the job as 2nd rider at Coolmore, plenty of opportunities to win G1’s as shown this season

    Kingscote been shafted here, was beaten by the better horse on the day last time out.

    Worked out well jocking off Marquand and Kirby for Dettori in the Derby didn’t it?

    Hopefully Bay Bridge runs and wins with RK on

    Out of interest, what would you likely end up with if you was to breed her with a sprint stallion? A mile/middle distance horse or just a really slow sprinter?

    I have absolutely no idea about breeding but often wondered what the likely outcome would be.

    Both Tony and Danny have said she doesn’t like jumping but the owner knows better :wacko:

    As a Group 1 winning mare on the flat surely she should be off to be covered :unsure:

    Any idea why Polly Pott has been sent to Ben Pauling?

    Seems an odd choice of trainer to send her to if you’re trying to win a 1000 Guineas?

    Sickening sight, not a fan of these cross country races. The big drops and the grass banks can’t do their legs much good.

    I remember that JP horse that did a huge flip going down one of the drops either last year or year before at Punchestown and breaking it’s back, Horrendous.

    Mullins Just had the first 2 in the bumper too, also got 4 of the 6 running in the next race. What a farce
