Monday's Throwback Race Of The Day


It is back for another week after we started this segment last week of going through some of the best contests of the last few years and we have one of the best jumps races the sport has seen today.

Of course it involves the greatest jumps jockey of the last 20 years with the Champ, A P McCoy in 2009 giving Wichita Lineman one of the best rides ever seen on a racetrack to land the 2009 William Hill Trophy at the Cheltenham festival.

That race is better known as the the Ultima Handicap which is the third race on the first day at the festival and in 2009 McCoy on board the J P McManus owned horse showed us something extra special.

It has gone down as one of the greatest rides at a Cheltenham festival but also one of best pieces of horsemanship on the big stage.

Many believe that no other jockey could of got this horse home but you will be able to tell for yourself.

We normally only add the finish to a race but we want you to watch the whole of this contest.
