A sad day with the loss of Beckermet - 24th June 2014

Our great old character, Beckermet, pulled up sore at Musselburgh on Friday and was seen by our team of vets at Station House on Saturday morning.  The xrays showed a joint injury from which he could not recover, not even to be retired to the paddock.

Since Becks came to us in 2010 I can honest say he has only been ridden at home a handful of times.  He loved his turn out and lunging and I was quite happy I could get him very close to race fitness in the lunge ring and a spin at Southwell after racing would put him right for his first run of the year.  Becks was a real character – a bit like a grumpy old man but all at Mowbray House loved him and will miss him.
