A horse trained by Nigel Twiston-Davies in Gloucestershire has been put down after a fall at Aintree.
Little Josh broke his shoulder in the John Smith's Topham Chase at Aintree this afternoon.
The 11-year-old gelding parted company with rider Sam Twiston-Davies on the Grand National course.
Professor Chris Proudman, Veterinary Advisor to Aintree Racecourse, said: "We are sad to confirm that is has been necessary to humanely put down Little Josh on welfare grounds, as a result of his fall at the 15th fence in the John Smith's Topham Chase.
"He received immediate veterinary attention for a broken shoulder, but this injury was not treatable and it was the necessary course of action."
