Ribero BTW concerning your namesake. My father looked after him on the plane when he came over from the USA as a yearling.

crikey,i saw him win the leger at a sodden donny,think i had a pound on him as i was still at school,my dad brought me up on lester and i backed him virtually blind,no real significance in me choosing the name,just one of plenty of horses i associated with piggott from that era and my dad always took me to the leger,tried nijinsky first i think and it had already gone.

Won the Irish Derby and Leger following in the footsteps of his full brother Ribocco who won both races the previous year.

I thought that Keep Talking was given to the Queen Mum by JJ and it won in her colours at Cheltenham.

Just checked the RP and that wasnt the case - shows my memory is going a bit!!

Yes, flyingbolt, but there are no points for setting your own questions!

Well done, Vectis. Not only did you get the right answer, but the beauty of quizzes like this is that it wasn't,as with the commentator, the one I had in mind! Morley Street won the Breeders Cup Chase in both 1990 and 1991 and was voted champion steeplechaser both years.

ribellaro just beats VECTIS to the punch. L'Escargot was voted Champion American steeplechaser in 1969, after winning the Meadow Brook Chase, and won the Gold Cup in 1970 and 1971.
