Friday Throwback Race - 18/09/20

Supreme Novices' Hurdle

Friday always brings the best throwbacks of the week and we are not going to disappoint, sticking with the jumps vibe we have been doing over the last few days, today we delve into the Supreme Novices' Hurdle from last season.

The 2020 renewal was nothing short of breathtaking, with it setting a superb tone for the rest of the festival with two horses needing a photo-finish to split them.

With high class two mile hurdlers racing against each other it was always going to be a spectacle but after horses bumping into each other and fallers, there was two that went to the front and left the rest for dead.

Abacadabras and Shiskin were neck and neck all the way up the hill after jumping the last and in the final strides, Nicky Henderson's Shiskin managed to win by a whisker.

What a race!
