Throwback Race For Wednesday - 09/12/20

Brain Power

The 2018 renewal of the International Hurdle saw Nicky Henderson land the event again with the only horse he as described ver the last few years that can match Altior in his work at home.

Brain Power has been a superb servant for the yard over the years and in 2018 finally managed to land this race having featured a few times before he finally won it.

The key to this horse winning on the day was the rain pouring down just before the off which played to his strengths better than it did to other horses in the race.

Brain Power Has been tried over fences and hurdles during his career taking out some superb races and what makes him special when it comes to being a winner of the International Hurdle is that he is the only ever winner of the race that has also won in America during his career.
