Ben Maher and Jane Clark release official statement regarding Urico’s injury…


Official Statement:

Earlier this afternoon, Sunday 18th May, Jane Clark’s 13 year-old bay gelding Urico sustained an injury whilst competing in the Longines Grand Prix of La Baule.

The British Team Vet, Bobby McEwen, immediately assessed the situation before making a decision to refer Urico to an extremely well respected veterinary clinic in Nantes.

Neither British Showjumping nor the British Equestrian Federation are able to give any further information at this moment in time, but can confirm that they are in ongoing contact with all parties concerned.

Urico will undergo surgery to repair the sustained injury. Jane, myself and our team are devastated but are confident that Urico will make a full recovery, so that this talented horse can retire from international competition and enjoy a retirement at Jane Clark’s farm in Wellington, Florida.

Jane and I would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and well wishes. We appreciate everyone’s consideration and care.
