Sherlock Holmes and the Sport of Kings - after reading


After reading #4                                                                                                                       Spoiler alert!

At Winchester where today Silver Blaze won the Wessex Cup- good news for the owner Mr. Ross and all the people with bets on the horse. The detective Sherlock Holmes knows Mr. Ross’s horse, and he found the name of John Straker’s races too.

So who killed John Straker? The horse did! Straker tried to make a cut in a tendon in Silver Blaze’s leg, and the horse kicked out. The horseshoes hit Straker on the head and killed him. The horse then disappeared until today.

     And killer was Silver Blaze in the week before the Wessex Cup race? That is still a mystery.
