Southwell Specialist Razin' Hell Suffers Devastating Heart Attack Mid Race

Razin' Hell

Thursday saw a really devastating incident occur for the connections and everyone associated with Southwell specialist Razin' Hell, who suffered a fatal heart attack mid race during the Class 5 Betway Sprint Handicap over five furlongs.

The John Balding trained eight year old was a well liked and truly notable horse around the Southwell paddock as he spent most of his career running on fibresand.

During his career at the Nottinghamshire track he went on to race 23 times where he scored in seven of those and gained place positions in 13 races.

Razin' Hill in the sprint contest today went to the front and travelled well into the race before two and half furlongs out something seemed to be wrong with the horse and it starting loses places and ground on the field.

Then, dramatically the horse started to want to throw the jockey off and instantly collapsed to the floor with rider Lewis Edmunds also falling at a fierce pace to the ground.

luckily for the young jockey he came away not seriously hurt but unfortunately for the eight year old gelding his career and life as a racehorse came to an abrupt end.

This horse will stay in the memory of the racing world for years to come and especially for Southwell racecourse and connections to the horse, this is a really sad day indeed.

Seeing something like this event happen to a racehorse just shows how fragile the animals actually are and how much sometimes they go through in there life.

We want to send our biggest condolences to the connections and anyone who was involved with Razin' Hell. Rest In Peace.
