His licence should be removed immediately.
That is absolutely horrific and sick. His statement is also unremorseful.
He took a call and decided to sit on the dead horse. Who would actually do that?#HorseRacing pic.twitter.com/JFbleg6swS

Some of his top horses include Conflated who will compete in the Cheltenham Gold Cup. Another top horse Delta Work will be out racing to retain the Glenfarclas Chase trophy.
Mighty Potter and Teahupoo are also tow of his top horses who are well placed in the Turners Novices Chase and Stayers Hurdle, respectively.

Gordon Elliot Previous wins at Cheltenham festival
Despite being only 45 years old, Elliott is already one of the most distinguished racehorse trainers in Cheltenham history. He has so far had 34 winners, which is more than just five of his contemporaries. One of those was the 2016 Gold Cup with Don Cossack.
Other wins include two Champion Bumpers, Fayonagh in 2017 and Envoi Allen in 2019. He is also a two-time leading trainer at the Festival. Last year, Gordon made a return from a year-long suspension after he was controversially photographed while sitting on a dead horse.
He had two winners and six runners-up last year, which in his terms are not great returns. As such, he will be looking to bounce back this week and get more wins this year.
