So sorry, RG. He was a lovely horse, and it sounds like he was cherished. :cry:

Doesn't get any more despicable than that. RIP indeed for that poor animal.

One of my first thoughts when the news about Sacred Falls came out was at least it wasnt Cambridge Stud again :cry:

The wonderful, tough and consistent campaigner Houblon Des Obeaux (FR) collapsed fatally from an internal bleed at Sandown yesterday. As with a lot of British racing fans, I’ve followed him for years and jump racing won’t be the same without him.

It’s Jennifer (FR) was also lost at Aintree, her first start in the UK.

Three-time G1 winner and dual-purpose stallion Notnowcato (Inchinor) dies at 17. He apparently passed last spring of a heart attack while covering a mare. It was unexpected as he apparently showed no signs of illness beforehand. He is notably the sire of Aussie G1 winner Redkirk Warrior (aka Redkirk).

is 2019 trying to meet some secret quota? this is the exact opposite of what we want, especially during a time that's supposed to be happy.

i hope the fond memories will help the connections still enjoy their holidays.
