    Contingent broke a leg on the gallops and no longer with us.

    Gutted as had high hopes for her.
    All comers, all grounds, all beaten!

    This perfect mix of poetry and destruction.

    Shame. He was a very good horse on his day.

    Not been on here in a while, but just passing on that sadly my old friend and forum friend Stargazy passed away at the end of March this year of a heart attack. I know in the old days of the forum, he had a friendly following and gave me some amazing times and thought I would just pass on so everyone knew. Hope everyone is well.

    Sad to hear this as he was a fabulous animal. Helped to save himself when the pelvic break happened as stood calmly eaiting for help. Was lucky enough to se him at leisure when recuperating at Kingswood Stud. At least he had a good life afterwards. Bless him
