Yes it did. Nice photo of him on the trainer’s Twitter Page, safely home in his own stable :)

Tom George, trainer of Saint Are (correct spelling this time), has done well overnight and will be going back to the trainer’s stables in Gloucestershire today. Hopefully if he’s well enough to travel, that’s a good sign.

The horse was Saint Arr (I think I’ve spelt that right). Just been reported that he’s been taken to the racecourse stables for assessment so semi-positive news. All other horses and jockeys reported to be ok.

Questions / Re: I'm totally confused...
« on: April 07, 2018, 04:41:32 pm »
I've nearly sunk myself several times due to buying/breeding way too much. Also, due to the way the game is run, there's only so much you can do in a day/week/month/year, so patience is important.

Definitely try not to have too many horse too soon - it's hard not to as there's so many pretty ones! But It's really only the racers that pay for themselves (hopefully) and maybe the studs if they are successful and/or popular. Broodmares tend to cost you in breeding and shipping fees unless you're lucky enough to have a suitable stud of your own to breed them to. If you breed your own horses, it's wonderful to see the new foals but it's a least two years before they hit the track and maybe longer before they show any enthusiasm about running.

Welcome! I'd suggest reading the frequently asked questions section as this might help you. It's quite straightforward once you get the hang of it but the FAQs will give you a lot of background info.
