Star jumper Fieldmaster has been euthanised following a trial this morning in which he incurred a pastern injury on the flat.
Fieldmaster’s most notable jumps win was in the 2014 JJ Houlahan Hurdle but also ran second in last years Grand National Hurdle as the favourite.
On the flat Fieldmaster also won the Devonport Cup.
Quality jumper Fieldmaster broke down today. Pastern injury sustained on the flat in jumps trial. Could not be saved. Sad news. @Racing
