"Our thoughts are with animal lovers across the country who have been affected by this loss, and confronted by the very real risks posed by racing to the horses involved", RSPCA Australia spokeswoman Jane Speechley said.

On the injury sustained by The Cliffsofmoher, Joseph O'Brien - representing his father Aidan - said: "Unfortunately these things can happen to a horse galloping around a field at home".
