WATCH: West End Boy trots up sound the morning after Sandown run
It was just a novicey mistake which can be forgiven on just his second run, and up to that point he had jumped well, and once again travelled nicely in the race.
As I say the good news is he’s absolutely fine today, he’s not showing any stiffness or soreness, so we can give him a few days rest, get him back working again, and look for his third race in the next three weeks or so.
Brendan [Powell] was really happy with him until the fall, the horse has gained more experience, and I’m in no doubt this is a lovely young horse with a nice future. I hope Leigh and Keith [owner for the day winners] enjoyed the experience.
