Pie_x can tell one end of a horse from the other
Default What happened too..

Townsender? The horse that used to badly play up and there is that footage of him flipping over backwards with his jockey? I think I read he was retired from racing but was interested to know what they did after that, whether he misbehaved at home or was Pts for being dangerous. X

Looks like he was retired straight after, i found this article below....

"Horse attempts Fosbury Flop

John Kington was almost crushed by the horse Towns Ender, in an unbelievable accident. As the jockey mounts the eight-year old Towns Ender, the horse performs an incredible flip.

Kington was thrown to the floor, but thankfully Towns Ender just missed him. The horse had injured jockey Tom Scudamore just a week before and was retired from action immediately after the incident involving Kington"

I just googled it and there is a link to a horse and hound post, one poster apparently used to ride him ( and was head girl at Scu's) and after the flipping over incident he was brain scanned and was shot.

Thanks for replying

Aww no that's a shame. I agree with you though beano! Could of been a disaster if he were bought by someone inexperienced or not understanding of him x
