Race Horses At Newbury Die Mysteriously

 by Sheldonboy , Sat Feb 12, 2011 7:34 pm

Racing at Newbury was abandoned in extraordinary circumstances after Fenix Two and Marching Song collapsed and died in the parade ring before the first race.

An inquiry and immediate post-mortems were announced, with the reasons for the deaths unknown amid speculation the horses died from some form of electric shock emanating from underneath the paddock.

Some horses had already made it down to the start and there were reports that others had "wobbled" on entering the paddock.

Despite running the first race, a decision was taking to call the rest of the big meeting off.


I started out with nothing and Iv'e still got most of it left
