Devastated to lose Orewa

Orewa: a comfortable winner of the valuable sales race at the Curragh

We were absolutely gutted to have to have Orewa put down on Friday.

He stood on a nail on the road walking up to the gallops a couple of weeks ago and despite being monitored closely an MRI on Thursday showed so much infection, he could not be saved.

A gelded son of Helmet, owned by Keith Brown, Orewa was an absolute super-star winning four of his seven starts as a juvenile including an awesome victory in the Tattersalls Ireland Super Auction Sale Stakes at the Curragh last September.

It’s a massive blow to the yard. We are always devastated when something like this happens and it never, ever gets any easier.

Our thoughts have been with Keith and Joan and those who worked closest with him here at the yard.
