Tragedy for kiwi-bred galloper in Dubai

2017 Dester Singapore Gold Cup (2200m) winner Gilt Complex had to be humanely euthanized after sustaining a critical injury when contesting the US$250,000 Gr.2 Dubai City Of Gold (2410m) in Meydan on Saturday evening.
The New Zealand bred and owned six-year-old lugged out badly rounding the first bend and was eventually eased out of the race. It was subsequently discovered the Gold Centre gelding had shattered his right hind pastern and was unable to be saved.
Gilt Complex was bred and raced by New Zealand couple Graham Mackie and Trish Dunell and won nine races and over S$1.5m from his 40 career starts.
