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.
