According to The Sun, Altior, a highly successful racehorse, is currently in critical condition. The horse, who is trained by Nicky Henderson and owned by Patricia Pugh, has a history of leg issues and has been suffering from a severe bout of colic, which is a condition that affects the gastrointestinal tract of horses.
Altior has had a successful career on the racecourse, winning multiple Grade 1 races, including the Queen Mother Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival in 2018 and 2019. He holds the record for the most consecutive wins over fences in National Hunt racing with 18.
Unfortunately, Altior’s current condition is causing concern for his well-being, and it could seriously impact his ability to maintain a healthy lifestyle through training and work. Colic can be a serious condition in horses, and treatment often involves surgery. The prognosis for Altior’s recovery is currently unknown, and updates on his condition will be provided as they become available.
These recent developments are sad news for the horse racing industry as Altior is considered one of the greatest horses in recent history. Many fans and industry experts are wishing for his speedy recovery, and the horse racing community is keeping a close eye on Altior’s progress and hoping for the best outcome.
