Carnage on Wolverhampton's new Tapeta, 5 horses down with one fatality

Tragedy struck at Wolverhampton last night in the 7:10 when the prominent racing Fitz Flyer clipped heels turning for home, fatally fell and caused absolute carnage to those racing behind him. Pandar – Freddie Tylicki, Cape Of Hope – Richard Kingscote and Ortac Rock – Paul Hanagan where all brought down in the mayhem that ensued. Powerful Pierre – Toby Atkinson unseated rider in its attempt to avoid the mayhem.

Remarkably the jockey of Fitz Flyer Jordan Nason escaped without serious injury while his mount suffered fatal injuries. Paul Hanagan was taken to hospital with a suspected broken collar bone, Richard Kingscote sustained a broken collar bone, arm, wrist and elbow and punctured lung.

As sad as the loss of our selection Fitz Flyer was, watching the event live gave the expectation of a greater tragedy! Fitz Flyer could be seen in the early part of the race tossing his head from side to side behind the front runners. Jordan Nason was still attempting to reign the horse in as they turned for home and having watched enough racing to know when to get excited, I was fully anticipating glory for our selection. What followed left me and a boisterous but small crowd at Dunstall Park stunned in to silence.
