Thanks for sorting everything Grant, really good stuff.

Close but no cigar for me, really enjoyed picking my horses and getting involved.

Must be honest and say I lost interest when that poor bugger was put down, know fuk all bar they have 4 legs and a tail but maybe one of you equine experts can say wether or not the shoe replacement may have contributed in some way either b4 or during the race obv would be a remote chance but I was surprised when the bookie on TV seemed well pleased and was laying even more on the horse as it was being shoed.
No difference whatsoever.

It was a nothing incident.
100% concur Marky. Had it got beat on the run in you could maybe think “oh yeah?” but busting a leg no way. Sadly like Golden Cygnet back in the 70’s we may have lost a horse that could have gone on to greatness but we’ll never know.

(I hope Bill’s not turning into a snowflake and looking for jump racing to get banned because Cheltenham has distracted everyone from his Brexit thread ;) )
Dont be silly it is sickening watching a horse die like that but the fact is they usually love racing prob more than the mug punters do otherwise they would not run and jump along with the pack after dislodging the dwarf from thier backs!!!!!

It was more a question of could he have tweaked something b4 the race due to the shoe or if the shoe was badly warped and fitted ect if it could cause injury.

Be a sad day for horses if racing ever got stopped.

Evidentlythe poor horse bruised a foot during the week and Sod’s law it was the same foot that lost the plate. According to connections everything was fine and the BHA vet gave him the all clear to run. Tragic but unfortunately it happens.

A few years back I owned the winter favourite for the Greyhound Derby and we put her away through the winter so as she wouldn’t get injured on a sloppy track. Brought her back for a 2 bend trial to freshen her up and she brockets her hock in perfect conditions. Thankfully she was saved for breeding but never raced again.
