WATCH: Cheltenham Festival Memorable Moment – Number 3

09 Mar 2023
In today's Cheltenham Festival Memorable Moment, we head to day four in 2019 where Nicky Henderson and Nico de Boinville teamed up to spring a huge 20/1 surprise in the Triumph Hurdle.

This memorable moment was sent in by Kevin from the West Midlands.

Having been a racegoer for as long as I can remember, it was always a dream of mine to own a racehorse. Sadly I didn't have the money to do so, but what I did have was a share purchased as a gift by my Dad in Pentland Hills.

To be in the crowd as part of a syndicate with a runner at Cheltenham is an amazing feeling, but what followed I doubt will ever be topped.

A near unseat at the first didn't bode well, but Nico stayed on board and the rest, as they say, is history.

I near feinted as my horse passed the finishing line in front. What an unreal feeling. Made all the stronger an emotion having my old man and best friend stood alongside me. The thrill in their eyes was probably as much as my own.

Getting congratulations from fellow racegoers and the volume of the roars from us to cheer Pentland home was incredible. A dream come true with those nearest to me being there with me. A day I will truly never forget!


Thank you, Kevin – from everyone at the Coral Racing Club – for sharing your heart-warming Cheltenham Festival moment with us.
