Very sad!We had a great day, albeit winning nought. My outsider came 7th and the others are still running …
Felt sorry for the horse who died. BUT - it wasn't this race - just racing. Horses put tremendous weight/power on that foot that hits the ground first - tons of weight - like a fast bowler - and thus can suffer damage.
Once a shoulder goes its almost impossible to fix it - thus they euthanise them. You might be able to fix a lower leg break - but even this is very hard and may break again.
