Throwback Friday Race


The Long Walk Hurdle over the years has seen some superb horses win the event and back in 2016 Unowhatimeanharry for Harry Fry and JP McManus was a very popular victor of the contest.

The 2016 renewal was a race that was tainted by Fog, but still saw a superb field of staying hurdlers head to post and it was this gelding that landed the event.

Unowhatimeanharry has had a superb career winning winning races like this one, the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle at the Cheltenham festival, Champion Stayers' Hurdle at Punchestown and the Long Distance Cup at Newbury on two separate occasions.

His name is normally what sucks people into being fond of this horse but then they also watched him and began to like him even more being a superb staying hurdler throughout his career.

Now at the age of 12 is still racing and in November managed to gain another win on his roster in the Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle at Aintree.
