William Buick was conscious as he was taken to hospital

Sadly, Permian had to be euthanized while Buick could be heading back to Britain following a second check.

Buick’s father Walter said: “William is going to have a second scan and hopefully they can get him on a flight home later today.

“It could have been an awful lot worse. I’ve spoken to him today and he is in good spirits.”

Charlie Johnston told Press Association Sport last night: “We’ve lost the horse. He suffered a catastrophic fracture of his left fore.

“I was with him on the track for 30 seconds. He was in the process of running a very disappointing race and I believe it was when he was winding down that it happened.

“I was with William and he is conscious, but complaining of back pain.”

Permian was one of the big success stories of this year’s Classic generation, having won the Dante Stakes at York and the King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot.

He earned over £400,000 in prize-money and won six of his 13 career starts.
