Tragic accident at Lingfield

Updated: Jul 1, 2018

As you have probably heard, we had a heartbreaking situation this evening at Lingfield, where Davi and Estupendo were involved in a terrible fall.

Davi did an amazing job trying to avoid the horse and jockey immediately in front, who stumbled. Unfortunately there was not enough space or time to avoid an accident.

Estupendo broke his leg and had to be put down.

We are waiting for news on Davi our prayers and heartfelt wishes go out to him and his family.

The LAYEZY syndicate members have flooded our message board with messages of support and condolences.

Updatw: Davi has been released from hospital.

We are also thinking of Trainer Robyn Brisland and his team and owners of Cutthechat who was involved in the incident and sadly had to be PTS. Jockey Kieran Shoemark was also taken to hospital with Davi and we hope for a speedy recovery for both and thoughts go to their family and friends at this difficult time.
