Double Shuffle Making Smart Recovery From Wetherby Fall

Double Shuffle was one of four runners that took part in the Charlie Hall Chase at Wetherby last weekend but took a nasty fall at the first fence with cause for concern for the horse and the jockey who took there time to get to there feet.

Trainer Tom George has come out and played tribute to the medical staff who were on hand on Saturday, who helped Double Shuffle make a swift recovery after the scare he gave his connections and racing fans watching on.

The last seasons King George VI runner up behind the Nickey Henderson trained Might Bite took his first fall in his chasing career and after it went from being slightly lame to giving his owners a real fright.

The horse who is owned by the Crossed Fingers Partnership was quickly after his fall taken to a local equine hospital, where he stayed over night for precautionary reasons and was swiftly back on his feet and back at his trainers yard in Gloucestershire.

(Credit At The Races) Tom George said: “We had a bit of a scare with him. He came off the course slightly lame and he deteriorated in the racecourse stables and he then went downhill and was of obvious concern.

“He was taken to the Rainbow Equine Hospital in Malton. They were absolutely top class to get the job done as quick as they did.

“He had all the X-rays and then he started improving and in a matter of hours he was walking again. It transpired he had hit the nerves in his shoulder and had the equivalent of what we know as a dead leg.

“He spent the night at the vets and is now back home and he trotted out fine this morning (Monday), so it was a scare which at this stage has had a good outcome.

“It was a worry. Once they start going like that, you always fear the worst. Thankfully, it’s gone the right way for him.

“He’s having a bit of physio on Tuesday and hopefully he’ll be out in the paddock and we’ll be riding him out again in the next couple of days.

“It was a shame he did that. He’s never done it before and may never do it again, but most importantly he got away with it.”
