The Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board Veterinary Officer examined Amen Korner, trained by W.P. Mullins, at the request of the Stewards and reported the animal to be clinically abnormal post race.

Funny how they’ve always ‘clinically abnormal’ following a mass drift in the market Excited

This can be added to another one of those **** threads posted here.

It was in the top ten drifters for the day because initially the bookmakers opening price was too short and based only on the fact that the horse is a brother to Augusta Kate. The bookies were running scared so they priced him up shorter than he should be. The horse then drifted because obviously there was little support behind the horse at short prices.

The Mullins website is actually quite accurate about their horses, and on Wednesday posted this in relation to Amen Corner 'Amen Korner (Richie Deegan) has his first run in the bumper. He has a nice pedigree but is probably more a summer type. We’re more hopeful than confident and a win would be a bonus'

Mullins basically told everyone 24 hrs in advance of the race that although this horse has a good pedigree, he is unlikely to win the race. He posted this information publicly for all to see. Anyone backing this horse deserves to lose whatever they lost for sheer stupidity. Mullins was very honest about this horses chances, and it was this post on his website which caused the drift. The fact that the horse was found to be clinically abnormal after the race was only a coincidence.
