Friday Throwback Race Of The Day - 11/12/20

Minella Indo


Cheltenham are set to host two days of superb racing With the International meeting set to go ahead today and to warm you up for the spectacles we have taken a look back at one of the recent special races at the track.

Prestbury Park has played host to some superb winners over the years, with some of these landing big races at big prices and today we are looking back at a horse that landed a Grade One at 50/1

Minella Indo, now a superb chasing prospect really got his career going at the 2019 Cheltenham festival when winning the Grade One Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle.

All the talk was about the Willie Mullins and Gordon Elliott runners, but it was Henry De Bromhead's outsider that went on to land the spoils and truly make a name for himself at 50/1.

Off the back of that he went on to land another Grade One over hurdles and his since ran superbly over fences, finishing a narrow second at last year to Champ in one of the best RSA Novices' Chase witnessed to date.
