• Colt breaks leg after stumbling at end of Arlington race, unseating Buick
• At Ascot, Britain and Ireland secure Shergar Cup after timely Berry double
William Buick was injured and his mount, Permian, had to be destroyed after a nasty incident at the end of the Secretariat Stakes in Chicago on Saturday night. The colt, trained in Yorkshire by Mark Johnston, had just crossed the line at Arlington International Racecourse in a disappointing last of six when he stumbled, unseating Buick.
It was immediately clear that Permian had broken his left foreleg so badly that he could not be saved. Known in Britain as one of the toughest Flat horses of the year, he was having his eighth race since mid-April and had won three of those, including the King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot.
