He added that the gelding was running very freely throughout the race, which he reported to scales on his return. He continued that once the rest of the field joined him going up the hill, he felt that the gelding was very tired and having squeezed him along with his legs, felt that the gelding had no more to give at which point he felt it prudent to pull up) (op 33/1)
