The horse was rescued from the ditch after falling into the ditch without a passenger during the race.

Butlers Briefs Kazoo beginner’s handicap chase at Atox Zetter on Thursday night. Alastair Ralph’s trained horse came down on the fifteenth fence where jockey Nick Scholfield was kicked out.

When he got up, the sportsman tried to catch his 6-4 favorite, but he ran away and set off at speed. But at the next fence, he slipped into the ditch in front of the obstacle and rolled to the side.

Unable to withdraw, staff and veterinarians rushed to the scene and carried out delicate rescue operations. The race on the Ladies Evening Card was delayed while working to free the affected animals.

Thankfully, about two hours later, the four winners were released and I was able to return to the stables.

Ralph explains what happened and states:

“It was a stressful situation. About 15 people, including 4 vets, helped. They had to calm the horse, dismantle the fence around him and pull him out. . “

The third race ended at 8:20 pm, more than two hours after the incident. Due to the turmoil in the race schedule, the authorities had to remove six of the nine hurdles in the next contest due to less sunlight.
