Veterinary Update - Wichita

The connections of the Aidan O’Brien trained Wichita have advised Racing Victoria (RV) that the horse sustained a further injury to its right hind leg while rehabilitating at Macedon Lodge from recent surgery.

Acting on the advice of stable veterinarians, the connections advise that Wichita was humanely euthanised on Friday, 23 October as a result of the complications encountered in its recovery.

Wichita has been transported to the University of Melbourne Equine Centre in Werribee where a post mortem will be conducted.

RV extends its condolences to the owners of the horse, trainer Aidan O’Brien, his stable staff and all who cared for the horse and are greatly saddened by their loss.
