Donald McCain charge Overturn is reported to be recuperating well after coming in an exhausted last place in the totesport Ebor at York on Wednesday.
The Northumberland Plate and Galway Hurdle victor engaged his usual front-running strategy in the celebrated Knavesmire event, prior to fading off extraordinarily from the turn for the line, last in a field of twenty.
The horse's connections were worried about his well being in the initial outcome of the race, but his McCain has stated that, after overnighting at the track, he is now on his way home.
"The vets took him to the stables after racing and put him on a drip to get some fluids into him and he recovered very quickly," McCain said.
"He's on his way home now. He's a good horse and I didn't want to abuse him.
"I was a bit conscious about running him but at the time it seemed the right thing to do.
"Obviously it wasn't, but you live and learn. I don't know if it was one run too many or whether the whole occasion just got to him.
"There were some worrying moments afterwards but he's OK now and he'll have a nice break before coming back over hurdles."
