Orbec euthanized after trackwork injury

An unfortunate accident during track work this morning has led to the John Thompson trained ORBEC being euthanized shortly after the accident.

Last years 4th placegetter in the Metropolitan Handicap, Orbec was amongst second acceptances for this years Caulfield Cup and Melbourne Cup.

It’s a real shame for connections as the horse had a promising staying career ahead of him, as he showed in last year, and only was relatively lightly raced with only 15 starts (3 wins, 5 placings).

Racing Victoria Stewards made the announcement via Twitter at midday on Thursday September 22nd.
