A former New Zealand Group 1 winner has sadly passed away after suffering an injury mid race at Morphettville today.
The Archie Alexander trained Survived wen’t around in the 2500m contest in the first on today’s Morphettville card but sadly suffered a fatal injury mid race.
Survived won the Group 1 Makfi Challenge Stakes in 2013 with his last win coming at Mount Gambier at the end of last year.
The gallant stayer amassed over $530,000 in his 65 career starts.
Devastated to report that our stable stalwart, Survived, suffered a fatal injury mid race today. He was the toughest, most determined and enthusiastic racehorse and has given us so much over the years. My whole team and connections will miss him dearly. RIP old boy.
