LITTLE JOSH WAS put down after breaking his shoulder at Aintree today.

“We can sadly confirm that Little Josh broke a shoulder in the Topham Chase. He was treated immediately but needed to be humanely put down,” A tweet from Aintree racecourse reads.

Jockey Sam Twiston-Davies was unseated from the Nigel Twiston-Davies-trained horse during the race over the Grand National course. Ted Walsh saw his mount Battlefront die of a heart attack yesterday at the course.
