When a decent racehorse dies likes this it hit's me harder than when a celebrity I like dies.

Thanks Trent
Very informative especially about the medicines.

Re: vautour
No - these animals will not find their way into the human food chain. Each race horse has a passport & a medical record that details all the medicines they receive throughout their training g regime. It's because of these medicines that these horses are not fit for human consumption.

Did you follow the case of St Nicholas Abbey on the morning line?
Every effort was made to preserve his life. Over the course of several months the Cool more operation spent thousands of pounds & countless man hours to keep him alive.
In the end it proved a fruitless exercise.
Of the three horses WPM lost Vautour in particular had done enough to earn a long retirement. If it had been possible to keep him alive just so he could have spent the remainder of his life in a field it would have been done.
Same with Avant Tout- owners would willingly have had the horse retire to a field of it had been possible.
Ask Vic would have been very valuable as a brood mare.

Apart from Andy Carroll

Do they eat horses when they murder them just because they can't run around and make MONEY any more?
If not why not?

Bad weekend in WPM yard.
Ask Vic suffered severe bout of colic - didn't survive operation.
Avant Tout suffered life ending injury after jumping 1st fence at Naas today.

Re: vautour
Lovely lean meat - I've always wanted to try horse.

Anyone know where I can get Vautourbergers?

Re: vautour
All depends how bad the break is Sidney.... a horse has got a better chance of surviving a break than at any time in horse racing history... unfort' the severity of the break is the deciding factor...

Re: vautour
Headline from Racing Post:

'Vautour has died in freak accident at Mullins yard'

No, he broke his leg and was, with malice of forethought, shot through the head. Nothing accidental about that.

Re: vautour
Gutted. Won a fair few quid on him last few festivals. Should have gone GC though and now we will never know if he was good enough
