He got cast in his stable and fractured his hind leg.

What an absolutely awful thing to happen.

Read this very sad news when popped up on phone this morning from the Independent newspaper.
Only 2 comments were:
1 Jump racing is Animal abuse. It is shameful.
2 Refusing to run, throwing his rider and being cast in his stable? Poor bloody animal.

Doubt these morons even know what being Cast in stable means. These people take any opportunity to have a go at horse racing, ignorant b@stards.

I can't remember any well-known horse being cast in his box with fatal consequences. Think it must have happened. Any ideas?

now i is a bit fick but this seems to happen with some regularity

is there something wrong with stable design? are they too small? surely something is wrong and can be changed to lessen the chance of more accidents like this. i dunno but its very sad and fixable, is it not?

maybe im missing something

Had to google what cast meant in this context.

It's incredible how horses are so mighty yet so fragile.

they are in-bred and over-bred and would not exist via natural selection. despite the advances in equine science and nutrition, fitness regimes, groovy new gallops and all sorts of medication horses have barely improved for about 100 years. all they do is become more fragile. how many have wind-ops? pumpkins never had a horse that can breathe. its unhealthy and they should be banned

the germans have it right. no horse thats been near any drug, or is infirm is allowed to breed there. hence their breeding industry is minute but their horses can win arcs on heavy ground, because they are strong and healthy, not inbred sprinting ponies

'Wesdaq', I did the same. Poor thing. Just not to be. I was about to back him against Galopin and Fastorslow at Punchestown. RIP Shishkin!

Yes indeed Strontium, that race at Sandown is one for the ages and it's how I'll remember Shiskin as well. A truly epic dual with Energumene that raised the roof.

Unforgettable race the 2022 Clarence House I left haydock early to get home and watch the race without any distractions and wasn’t disappointed truly amazing race only the 2005 champion hurdle can compare with it as a spectacle this century.


I think impossible can be forgiven it’s not difficult to get the arkle and the champion chase mixed up.


Very sad news about a horse who gave so many so much pleasure.

Totally agree about the race, and unfortunately both horses were never 100% the same again, it took a lot of of both.

Altior v Cyrname was a similar type of race/outcome, also at Ascot, neither were the same again.

It does seem strange that the issue of being cast in their box can't be addressed somehow, we always hear the talk from trainers that they open up the stable door every morning hoping not to find anything untoward without realizing that they are probably quite literally referring to this issue.

It also doesn't bare thinking about as to how long the poor horse had been in there suffering before it was discoveredSad
