My first reaction on seeing the screens was that it was a horse but it could not possibly have been Saint Are. Putting the screens round injured jockeys is a more recent thing that has been instituted.Thanks for the update Al - I jumped to the same conclusion but glad I was wrong!
It was good to read that at least 10 vets were attending to Saint Are at one point. I think the Authorities have got the care of horses and jockeys spot on but injuries and deaths in racing is part of the territory and cannot be completely eliminated.
