Older Comments about Thomas Chippendale...

Some touching words from Thomas's groom: "Groom Luis Villarroel, who became an employee of Sir Henry Cecil at Warren Place four years ago, was understandably in tears when walking away from his horse. "I can't believe how hard he fought, he was such a wonderful animal," he said, still clutching the lead rein to which Thomas Chippendale had been attached when they parted at 3pm. "I was celebrating with the travelling head lad when they told me he had gone down. It took me a minute to get to him and it was only a minute after I got there that he died. His eyes were open but then he stopped breathing and he was gone. "He was brilliant. He was always clean, he was very gentle and he never refused to do his work. He loved to be looked at and for people to pay attention to him. Sometimes he wanted to play. Sometimes he wanted to be naughty. Sometimes I let him. I will miss him. "The last time I spoke to Sir Henry he told me the horse would make me happy at Ascot. He knew he would run a very good race. It's very hard for us and the whole team, but we're still strong and we're going to keep working."

Highs and lows of racing. This beauty, who just won the Hardwicke in gutsey fashion for Lady Jane, collasped just after crossing the finish line. They believe a heart attack. Praying he will be OK....

Sadly, Thomas Chippendale has died of of heartache after a gutsy performance to win the Hardwicke Stakes. You never get used to having see this happen in racing no matter how long you've followed the sport!!

  • Horsefan90 · This definetely saddened my morning. I remember seeing him on TV in the paddock and thought that he was absolutely gorgeous and that he will win. Never imagined that would've been his last race and victory. · 401 days ago
