Bula was undefeated in 12 racecourse appearances when winning his first Champion Hurdle in 1971. It's all staying nicely competitive.

stoney crossing

When: 15 Oct 10 01:05
stony crossing competed in 1964 games and then finished 3rd behind arkle and mill house in 1965Happy
By:
wizardofoz
When: 15 Oct 10 08:24
Wow! The standard is seriously high. I thought that was difficult!

Stoney Crossing had been 13th in the 1964 individual eventing at the Tokyo Olympics before finishing only 50 lengths behind Arkle in third place in the 1965 Gold Cup. Bill Roycroft rode him there and a month later at Badminton where he finished 6th.

It's going to have to get tougher tomorrow.Devil

it was interesting reading about that rider bill roycroft, that in the 60 olympics he had a bad fall from his horse and was in hospital...the doctors didn't want to release him to ride in the final round.
when they refused, he threatened to leave his hospital bed in his underpants...they gave in and he rode a perfect round to win the gold medal for australia.

By:

By:

When: 16 Oct 10 07:01
1992. Tailed off when refusing in the NH Chase.

Still another half point up for grabs.

Ok, now that things have settled down, here's the format:

   1. Questions to be posted early evening,7pm,or as soon as I can, so they'll be late now and again.

   2. Questions to last a maximum of one week with a clue a day given.

   3. Only one guess, sorry I meant informed answer, allowed per forumite per day.

   Hope this suits most.

   Ribellaro, 'History of the National Hunt Chase 1860-2010' is now being printed with a release date of November 12th, Countryside Day at Cheltenham, planned. I'll keep you posted.
