Tuesday, 8th February 2011

Dual stakes-winning 5YO gelding Battlefield (Choisir-Charming Charge, by Rory's Jester) was euthanased "after a track gallop mishap at Scone" yesterday reported TVN. Battlefield (trained by Paul Messara) has been sidelined with injury since July 2009, when he won the Listed Ramornie Handicap (1200m) at Grafton on the NSW north coast. Overall Battlefield (a $300,000 yearling consigned by Glentree Downs at the 2007 Inglis Premier Sale in Melbourne) recorded 5 wins (also including 2009's Listed Ascot Handicap over 1200m at Eagle Farm) & a placing from 7 starts for $203,050 earnings.
