The highs and lows of racing.........Popaway won by twenty lengths hard on the bridle in ground I thought she would hate. In the next race when we were still on a high we very sadly lost Alistair who broke his back leg after he slipped up after the open ditch. He was in the leading group on the final circuit at the time and had settled really well. Thankfully he didn't suffer at all and had his ears pricked when he was put down.Christina had plaited him up this morning, he had won best turned out and Holly was with him when he died. He knew he was very much loved at the end. We are all devastated.
