with the devastating loss of his prized champion Mummify. The horse that, two years ago, brought him back to racing's front line. We were going into the race expecting he'd field the race but never expected this to happen.

Few, including his owners, realising he'd sustained a serious injury. He was taken to a nearby animal hospital and drugged overnight but this morning it became clear he would never walk again.

He touched so many people - all the owners and stuff, unfortunately, the injury was far to severe and we didn't want to make him suffer the pain. Veterinarian John Walker describing the decision to put him down as the saddest of his career. When we made the decision, we made it based on the fact he had no feeling to his foot and no blood supply to his foot. Owners gathered to pay their final respects to Mummify, now resting on a hilltop alongside another of Freedman's Australian champions, Scillaci.
