    Death of Tiger Cliff raises fatalities to three at Royal Ascot
    • Favourite in final race at the meeting collapses at finish
    • Two horses were also killed on first day of meeting
    Chris Cook at Ascot The Observer, Saturday 21 June 2014
    For the second consecutive year, the final day’s action here was marred by an equine fatality when Tiger Cliff, ridden by Tom Queally, collapsed shortly after passing the post in fourth place in the final race, the Queen Alexandra. That brought to three the number of horses that have died here this week, following two that broke bones and were euthanised on Tuesday.
    “As with the two deaths earlier in the week, this is very, very sad and certainly not a good way to end the meeting,” said Ascot’s spokesman, Nick Smith. “However, there is always going to be some risk associated with the sport and there’s no implications on the track or track management.”
    Jenny Hall, a British Horseracing Authority vet, attended Tiger Cliff on the scene and reported that this was a case of sudden death, possibly caused by a heart attack. She said that, as with humans, who can also die suddenly when young, fit and outwardly healthy, there is no complete understanding of the causes or predisposing factors.

    The two horses that died on Tuesday were Sir Graham Wade, who fractured a pelvis, and Case Statement, who fractured a fetlock. Smith said at the time that the injuries “could have happened anywhere” and there was no reason to believe they were caused by anything specific to Ascot. Almost 500 horses ran at Ascot over the past five days.

    Arc heroine Treve faces a spell on the sidelines
    By Graham Dench RacingPost 22 JUN 2014
    TREVE has been ruled out of all the midsummer middle-distance highlights by pulled muscles and is not expected to be seen on a racecourse until September.
    However, connections have no doubt at all that last year's brilliant Arc winner has retained all of her ability , and she is expected to be fully fit when the time comes for her to bid to retain her crown at Longchamp in October.
    Harry Herbert, representing Al Shaqab Racing, has revealed that Treve is "a bit sore in her back" after last week's third to The Fugue, her second defeat of the season.
