Cheltenham is a fantastic festival and a great time of year but while I look forward to the excitement and the drama I dread seeing anyone get seriously injured or been killed and devastatingly this year we have lost two horses already at the festival. Our Conor had to be put down following after a fall in the Stan James Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham on Tuesday. It was a horrible fall and he didn’t get up. 

The horse, who won last year’s Triumph Hurdle, suffered serious injuries and was treated for back injuries for some time after falling. Jockey Danny Mullins was on board for the race.

The Dessie Hughes trained five-year-old was put down on the advice of the vets who were treating him who said it was the humane thing to do.

The horse, who was bought by Barry Connell for a reputed seven-figure sum following his win in the Triumph Hurdle by 15 lengths a year ago.

Tweets flooded in following his death and at one stage Our Conor was in the top trending topics proving the love people felt in Ireland for the amazingly talented, adorable horse.

Connell said: “It’s is very sad, as he was such a young horse at the beginning of his career. He had already shown what enormous potential he had. I’ve not seen the fall yet, so I’m not exactly sure what happened. Danny said they went smart for the first few furlongs and then steadied it up. 

“It is unusual for him, as jumping has been his forte and it was such a surprise to see him come down. The vets were very good, and I have to say that they gave him every chance, but there was nothing that could be done. It’s unfortunate, but it goes with the territory – in this game one minute you can have a winner and the next one of your horses can die. They gave him sedatives straight away so he was in no pain, and they did everything possible to save him. Everything was top class. I’ve been in this game 40 years, and one of the reasons everyone loves it is that the highs are very high and the lows are very low. I’ve always admired him. He was only a baby and we knew that if he got placed this year we would be coming back next year with an even better chance.”

The British Horseracing Authority tweeted: “Sad to confirm that Our Conor, after extensive treatment by veterinary surgeons, was humanely put down due to a suspected serious back injury.”

Two horses were killed on Wednesday as well. Stack The Deck, who was running in the Champion Bumper and Akdam, who was brought down by a faller in the Fred Winter Juvenile Handicap Hurdle, both died after sustaining fatal injuries in their races which took place on Wednesday afternoon.

It is heartbreaking and devastating. I know how painful it is having lost my dog in 2010.

May the three horses rest in peace. My condolences are with their owners and all their loved ones at this sad time.
