Edinburgh Knight dies after gallops injury
SMART handicapper Edinburgh Knight had to be put down after injuring himself in a gallop at Lingfield in preparation for a winter campaign in Dubai.
Trainer Paul D'Arcy said on Friday: "He was just breezing round, nothing serious, and did a suspensory around the home turn.
"It always happens to the good ones," added the Newmarket trainer about his five-year-old.
The son of Selkirk won six races, including his Listed win in the Hyde Stakes at Kempton in 2011.
He also won the apprentice finale on the Champions Day at Ascot last year and last ran in the Group 2 Challenge Stakes at Newmarket in October.
