JULIAN MUSCAT   INTERVIEW TIM MORRIS
“THE VOICE OF REASON “TIM MORRIS is the man the sport relies on to defend its corner in the face of controversies such as whip abuse and horse deaths. JULIAN  MUSCAT talks to the BHA director of equine science and welfare.”

“REWILDING’S demise in the King George v1 and Queen Elizabeth Stakes demanded a bout of introspection. For those at Ascot 11 days ago, time froze as the stricken colt arose to canter past the grandstand on three legs. The image arrested people in their tracks . The desire to be alone was overwhelming-as was the need to forsake conversation, to absorb the act of sudden brutality on a horse in vibrant health until that fatal false stride.

 JMC  ‘fatal false stride ….what fatal false stride…?

“IN THESE MOMENTS, Professor Tim Morris, the British Horseracing Authority’s director of equine science and welfare, must be at his most lucid. While others withdraw into quiet reflection he must assess with indecent haste how to handle racing’s latest trauma.”

NEWS GRAHAM GREEN  BRITTAIN SLAMS WINDSOR VET OVER KASLA DEATH
  “CLIVE BRITTAIN yesterday claimed that the horrific manner in which the filly KASLA met her death last week could have been avoided.  
The three- year – old, owned by Saeed Manana, was pulled up when loosing her action 100 yards into her debut. Despite jockey KIEREN FALLON expressing fears that she had suffered a fracture, the daughter of MORE THAN READY was allowed to travel back to Newmarket but died during the journey. KASLA panicked in the horsebox after experiencing a massive surge of pain due to haemorrhaging and fatally cut through an artery while attempting to clamber over a partition. Brittain, who was  monitoring events from home, said ‘It was a suspected fracture and then they (the vets)  felt the filly wasn’t as bad as first thought and that it was safe to put her on the horsebox.

 “I was surprised they thought she was fit to travel, but you take veterinary advice; that’s what they are there for. During the trip back she haemorrhaged – it was a fractured pelvis-and she severed an artery and bled to death in the  (horse) box.”

“Although the circumstances surrounding KASLA’S death have left connections deeply upset, the veteran Newmarket trainer does not anticipate any legal proceedings. Brittain said “For me, it was a mistake to put the filly on the (horse) box and bring her back , but having said that there’s enough dirty water in the game now without adding to them. This is something that could have been prevented but wasn’t . If the same situation happened again the filly would definitely not travel. My vets have told Windsor what they think, and the vet that took charge did ring to apologise but unfortunately the damage had been done. Windsor’s senior vet Jeremy Ridgeway yesterday defended the decision to allow KASLA to travel. He said ‘I have more than 30 year’ experience at Windsor racecourse and this is the first fractured pelvis that has ended up with displacement and haemorrhage like this. Those of us who do track and trainer work know that unfortunately fractured pelvises occur. In many cases, they are absolutely disastrous immediately but I’d repeat the decision made on the information I had to hand. Sadly the filly freaked out in the horsebox, and it was that extra movement, I believe, that turned a crack into a full fracture, a bit of bone went through a major artery in the hindquarters, and basically she bled-out internally. It is the first time I’ve ever had one that’s been like this. It happens very rarely, thank God, but when it does it is horrendous. I feel for all the parties.”

  This standard of flippant uncaring is totally unbelievable, inadequate and unacceptable. Where are the British Horseracing Authority Regulation (BHA) parties and Tim Morris over such as this? What do they intend to do now over this horrendous suffering? Duck out with the vet's fast as they did to Nick Henderson?
BHA regulation appear to take the view that suffering horses are to be ignored, if they die they will only be used in meat pies ….
 KIEREN FALLON and CLIVE BRITTAIN have both achieved BLOODHORSE LITERACY at the highest level. So how is it that these BHA regulators along with Tim Morris take no notice of anything that these two Bloodhorse Literate achievers find that they need to say? KIEREN FALLON told the vet involved what had happened, so why did this vet ignore what FALLON said? How does Tim Morris intending to wriggle out of this one, along with the regulation parties of the BHA's waffling negative lip service? All tarred with the same brush.
