I would say a bit of decorum is missing from proceedings.
The horse will inevitably be destroyed .

mine too, i know its hindsight but they should of pulled it after losing the shoe.
It happens all the time poc, that's why there is a Farrier at the start at most meetings.
Owners and trainers wont pull a horse out unless its dying .

Had a brilliant morning few hours round the stable and/yard with horses of all shapes and sizes including newborn foals. Gorgeous animals, then to see this..

Got an affinity with them horses now, my Mrs is very upset, she just gone back to the yard as she is leading hand there today.

Sir Erec cost £170k at the sales.
It had earned just over £410k in win and place money.

Yeah I know especially in a race like this the pressure is too much but I have seen them pulled before, usually because they cannot get the shoe back on right or take too long.

I'd be lying if I said I didn't think about my ACCA that was going to rescue my festival going up in flames, but that was horrible to watch :(.

I don't know much about these things, but surely the lost shoe must have contributed to that?

That's racing I'm afraid, fraught with things like this. I thought the vet normally gives them the once over if something like this happens, and he gives the OK either way.

Real shame, i know owners and trainers get the thrill from winning, but their number one priority is hoping they get round.

I'm far being an expert in farriers and their work but have seen the local master farrier working on our horse. The fit has to be in perfect plane for whatever use it is needed for - if is out of bonk or tilt then the horse could and would not be happy and able to perform as it should. ITV racing said the shoe was bent so it may have been put back on a bit iffy ?

Had my Skybet £20 on Coeur Sublime which lost down the final straight.

Was hoping they'd refund it so I could put it on Ch'tibello in that race, sickener!

They found a horse shoe at one of the hurdles....that means one of these horses have one missing or it belonged to Sir Erek....or....it has been there since whenever!
