One For Arthur To Miss The Season

One For Arthur has been monitored and scanned since the Aintree Grand National and yesterday, after his first piece of work, he was found to have disrupted fibres in his right fore superficial flexor tendon.  He will miss the rest of this season. 

Arthur's Grand National win has changed our lives, and we are eternally grateful to him. Arthur's welfare comes first and his rehabilitation will be tailored to bring him back for the Grand National in 2019. 

The Two Golf Widows, Deborah and Belinda have taken 'triumph and disaster' in an impeccable manner, and they, like us, would like to thank all of Arthur's supporters and wish him a speedy return to full health and the racecourse.

    The highs and lows of sport. No more than I would expect of the 2 golf widows and the staff of Lucinda to put the welfare of One for Arthur first. That day last season will live in the memory of many Scottish sports fans. Bear.

    Really sad news but Arthurs welfare always comes first. I have no doubt he will make a full recovery and give us all a great deal of pleasure once again.

    What a shame for all of you - but as we all know so well, that's racing... and having been privileged to visit last week, it is clear that the welfare of your horses is your absolute priority. Go well, all at Arlary...

    I never tire of watching a re-run of his famous win in the National and I am sure he will be back. I hope he has a full recovery.
