MALAYSIAN-bred Classic Sparkle, who was tested positive for strangles, a highly contagious upper respiratory infection in horses, was put down at the Perak Turf Club (PRTC) in Ipoh on Monday.
This was confirmed by Dr Alistair Murdoch, the chief veterinary surgeon of PRTC yesterday.
Murdoch said: "Classic Sparkle was put down on Monday and a post-mortem carried out on her revealed that she was suffering from strangles. She has been buried." "We had no choice, but to put her down," added Murdoch.
The Peter Lee-trained Classic Sparkle, who had a win and five placings to her credit, had won over RM60,000 in prize money to date.
