Chirs Waller remembered dual Group 1 winner Rangirangdoo as “his favourite horse” after the eight-year-old’s tragic end during the running of the Doomben 10,000 on Saturday.
Waller set up a Twitter account @Rangirangdoo2 after the eight-year-old was euthanised after breaking down at the 600m mark in the Doomben 10,000.
“Set up this account as a tribute to my favourite horse,” tweeted Waller.
“Tragic end for him today. Will be missed by all.
“He won two Group 1s, always raced against the best and came back from serious injury. Thoughts are with all of his connections.”
Nash Rawiller, who partnered Rangirangdoo to his great triumph – the 2010 Doncaster Handicap, fondly remembered the horse.
“Never forget the Donnie. One of my most memorable days at the races. RIP Rangi,” Rawiller tweeted.
Rangirangdoo, a $170,000 purchase at the New Zealand yearling sales, won $2.2 million in a career that saw him win 10 races including the 2010 Doncaster, the 2011 George Ryder as well as the 2009 Group 2 Waterford Crystal Mile, the 2010 Group 2 Expressway and the 2009 Group 3 Tramway.
