Owner of Beaten Horses Responds

Following on from the horrific attacks that took place at Fairview Race Course this morning, leading owner, Hedley McGrath, would like to set certain facts straight following many misleading statements on social media from various training yards.

From the horse’s mouth:

To all of the detractors who think they are clever by spreading false stories about what happened at Fairview this morning, make sure you check your facts and tell the truth!

I would like the owners of ALL of the race horses that are currently stabled at Fairview with the various trainers to know that it was not just Yvette Bremner’s grooms who took part in the riots this morning, it was also the grooms from the other yards who were part of the attacking and rioting. The same grooms who are employed to look after their horses were part of this riot! They need to ask themselves how safe are their horses really?

There are currently many false stories being spread, and I am not sure what the purpose of this cover up is, but this morning was one of the most barbaric, savage attacks I have ever seen and pray to God we never see again!

The injuries sustained by these horses was not simply from them being let out of their stables and chased!
