DELUSIONOFGRANDEUR DIES AFTER HAYDOCK FALL

Monday 26th November 2018

After my latest up beat post,  I`m so sad to report that our high class 8yo  3ml chaser Delusionofgrandeur collapsed and died this morning at Sue Smiths Craiglands Farm yard.

After his horrific fall at Haydock on Betfair Day, it was hoped no serious damage had been done, but obviously we were wrong, and we await a vets report.

Myself and members were gutted after being given the news.

For such a small operation as ours, it was amazing to be involved with a horse that could…and probably would have gone on to greater things………”it was brilliant to be lucky enough to own a Saturday horse” was my favourite comment from one of my members.

Not the time now to get involved with the ongoing debate regarding those stiff Haydock fences because my head  and heart have opposing views.

So for now, all I can say is that my members and I,  in our own small, dedicated group, will be hard pressed to find another one as good as Delboy…thats for sure.
