With a very heavy heart I have to share that 'Sara' has passed away this morning due to complications from colic. Our entire Castle Hill family and every person she has touched has lost a great friend. Thank you Sara not just for all the dreams you made come true but simply for being who you were. You always will be my champion in every way. God speed good friend."


"Sara" is the barn name for McLain's beautiful champion show jumper Sapphire
How sad- and the farm is not all that far from me. In reading the article(I think the link is one FB- read it somewhere), she has foals via transfer and 2 clones.

May she R. I. P.

Terrible news out of Woodbine this morning than an exercise rider was killed when a horse collapsed on him. The horse, a filly, also died. Names are floating around, but I'm waiting for a more official statement.

Edited to add: The horse was 3yo Tawney's Wish, who had had one start.

Edited to add: The rider was Mourad Boudra, a Moroccan immigrant who'd worked at the track for several years. The trainer quoted in the article says he was one of the best: http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2014/06 ... track.html

Cole Forty Five on June 20th at SA- from CHRB minutes:

"As the field entered the backstretch of the one mile turf race, #8 COLE FORTY FIVE suffered a severe injury to the left front leg. The rider Kayla Stra attempted to pull the horse up, however, in doing so she lost her balance and fell.
Jockey/Driver condition – Examined by paramedics – transported to Arcadia Methodist Hospital for observation; appeared to be uninjured
Horse condition – Fractured sesamoids left front, euthanized by the trainer’s practicing veterinarian."

Very sad. Lesstalk in Paris, runner-up in the Coronation Stakes just a week ago, has died in France. No details yet.

Article now includes "during a veterinary examination being undertaken with view to a sale of the filly."

May she RIP.

Not sure if I am translating this right, but it sounds to me like a bad hemorrhage that left them no choice but to euthanize.

Put it into Google Translate and that is what it said. Wonder if they were scoping her and something went very wrong? Would think that if she had an active bleed, she would have showed some kind of sign.

Something going wrong during the scoping would also be my guess.

Good God...what would you do to a vet whose incompetence basically killed your prized filly? Sue him for malpractice? Get him blacklisted at every track in Europe? Or (my inclination) beat him bloody with the scope tubing?
Ugh. :evil: That poor filly.

What if the filly freaked out for some reason and flipped over?

There's another French website that ascribes the cause as "mauvaise manipulation vétérinaire".

mauvaise manip.....error; bad move; mistake

I think that makes it pretty clear that the vet screwed up.
Tubing, beat with.

Have seen one source saying it was a perforated rectum -- but have yet to see any official word. Which, yes, would be a massive screw-up.

Perforated rectum!? What sort of pre-sale vet exam would involve her rectum? Or were the buyers checking to see if her reproductive tract was healthy...and somehow that exam pierced her rectum? Which would, I presume, also mean that her vaginal surface was also perforated?
That poor, poor filly.
