Throwback Thursday Race Of The Day - 06/01/22

Summerville Boy

Today we are taking a look back at the 2018 renewal of the Tolworth Hurdle with the Supreme Novices' Hurdle winner Summerville Boy landing the spoils in determined fashion under Noel Fehily.

The now 10 year old has had a superb career over hurdles, landing two Grade One events and his first came in the Tolworth at Sandown when seeing off Kalashnikov.

The pair took each other on again that season at Cheltenham and although it looked as the roles were going to be reversed, Summerville Boy got back up close home to take the spoils.

Tried over fences and it not really suiting, he was moved back to hurdles and he went on to land the Grade Two Relkeel Hurdle at Cheltenham.
