From the Stewards’ Report for the Carolina Cup steeplechase held in Camden, South Carolina, May 22:
“FLAMETTA fell at the second last fence after missing a long spot.”
“SEA MAST chipped in…sustaining a rotational fall at the last fence.”
“KILRONAN was pulled up after the eleventh fence…reported to have a sore stifle.”
“PIK EM became fractious at the start – colliding with the running rail and breaking it causing a delay at the start. While the repair to the rail was taking place BODES WELL and LORD JUSTICE were kicked at the start.”
Then: “PIK EM fell at the 10th fence and was vanned off lame.”
Yes, the same horse who was “fractious” and “collided with the rail” would eventually fall and be “vanned off lame.”
Just another day of good, clean fun.
