Throwback Race Of The Day - 05/05/20


Today's Throwback race of the day looks at the Punchestown Festival that would have been taking place around this time if it was not for the suspension of racing in Ireland.

However, with the blues of not being able to see the best of the Irish national hunt stars we thought we would look back at a superb race from the 2018 festival.

The Irish Champion Hurdle every season is a race to savour and this one was no different with the big guns Samcro and Melon looking sure to mount a challenge three out but falling at the same time.

This left the race wide open for Supasundae who looked out paced mid-way through the race but managed to rally in the closing stages and take the contest.
