Throwback Race Of The Day For Tuesday - 24/08/21

Bob Olinger

Today we are going way back into the memory bank and taking at look at one of the best performances during the national hunt season, where Bob Olinger for Henry De Bromhead truly announced himself as one of the stars of the jumps.

On the second day of the Cheltenham festival, the first race of the day was set to pit three of the best staying hurdlers against each other.

Bob Olinger, Gaillard Du Mesnil and Bravemansgame all went to post for the Ballymore Novices' Hurdle and it was the former who gave us one of the spectacles of the weekend.

Under a superb ride by Rachael Blackmore, he got upsides Nicholls' horse turning the bend at the top of the hill and then dominated from there.

Last season he was one of the best hurdlers in the sport and now set to go novice chasing, he will be very exciting to watch again.
