Howard Johnson labelled Direct Route "as good
a horse as I ever trained" after the popular chaser
was put down at the age of 22.
The gelding won 15 of his 40 starts for the former
County Durham trainer, claiming five Grade One
prizes over fences including two Melling Chases
at Aintree and the Tingle Creek at Sandown.
But he is perhaps best remembered for going
down by a short head to Edredon Bleu in an exhil-
arating climax to the Queen Mother Champion
Chase in 2000, a race in which he had finished
third 12 months earlier.
Since his retirement in 2002, Direct Route spent
his days at part-owner Chris Heron s farm in York-
shire, but Johnson confirmed he suffered a broken
leg in the paddocks on Monday.
Johnson said: "He was a great horse---along with
Inglis Drever he d be as good a horse as I ever
"He loved Aintree, but wasn t a lucky horse at
Cheltenham. The year he just got beaten in the
Champion Chase it looked like it was a dead-heat
or we d just won, we couldn t believe we d lost.
"A couple of years earlier we thought we d win
the Arkle there and Dobbs (Tony Dobbin) fell off
him. He wasn t very happy!
"He was an unbelievable horse really as he got
an injury to his pelvis as a foal and was all wrong
behind and then he had a twisted foot, but he was
"We won a bumper at Market Rasen first time
out, we absolutely cleaned up and Mary Reveley
(former trainer) was interested in buying him after
that and came to look at him.
"She said Howard, the horse won t come down
the hill at Hexham . I said No, but he ll go up the
hill at Cheltenham .
"Sir Robert Ogden was interested in buying him
as well, but we decided not to sell and he did great
for us and his owners, Michael Thompson and
"Those were the days, the days I enjoyed going
"It s hard to compare him and Inglis Drever.
They were two totally different horses but both
were great to have anything to do with.
"It s sad he broke his leg, but he had a good
