Educate, winner of this year’s John Smith’s Cup and a former winner of the Cambridgeshire Handicap at Newmarket, had to be put down today, it was reported by At The Races.

The Ismael Mohammed trained 7 year old was contesting the Listed Betway Quebec Stakes at Lingfield Park, but seemed to falter in the final furlong and was reported as having broken down by At The Races.

Sadly the broadcaster later indicated that he had been put down.

The son of Echo Of Light won seven of his 42 career starts and over £371,000 in win and place prize money.

The race was won in decisive fashion by Battalion, who surged clear under William Carson, to make it two from two since joining Jamie Osborne from William Haggas.
