I do like the ITV racing vault , and hoped they would show an old Charlie Hall winner.
Great to see Wayward Lad's slick jumping style again , after a couple of blunders in his novice chases he went on to be one the finest jumpers of a fence I have ever seen.

Friend of mines parents had a share in the horse. Went to wetherby that day as a 7 year old when football had finished. Love for the sport has continued since that day!!

The best horse to have failed to win a Cheltenham Gold Cup.

The best stayer since Arkle  BHL thrashed him on his home track but he was a great horse.

Burrough Hill Lad, the horse that got me addicted aged around 11

...the lad was a also a great looking horse . so athletic and walked with a real swagger, almost a sexy walk if that is possible from a horse . i once told a girl in my office at a party that she had that walk wayward had . it was a real compliment but she didn't understand it and slapped me across the face !

I first heard "walks like a ta rt" from my uncle jack about 55 years ago.  I wasn't sure what he meant then, but I learnt later that he  wasn't often wrong.

Gaff track, the home straight is just way too short.

Did pretty well going up the hill in '86  ,  only the 5 pounds the handicapper gave the winner beat him .Cool

BHL thrashed him
Silver Buck gave BHL a ton of weight and a thrashing in his pomp.

Didn't we use this phrase for Pendil originally ?

"The mare is going to get up" "Ah she was game as a pebble" one of the best Cheltenham memories ever....

recently read a great book about BHL - apologies cant remember name but what a dream they lived - owner didn't hav a pot to piss in and even had to sign on the dole at one time whilst the sun did an "expose" on him making "thousands" yeah right LaughLaughLaugh

Saw Silver Buck run at Teeside but undoubtedly Wayward Lad was the fav horse of the Dickinson generation closely followed by I'm a Driver and The Mighty Mac for me

BHL thrashed him

Wayward Lad 12/1, thrashed BHL 4/5, in the 1985 King George.
Report sixtwosix November 5, 2017 11:30 AM GMT
To be fair he was 12/1 in a 3 runner race because BHL appeared to have him in his pocket at the time.
Report Dr Crippen November 5, 2017 11:41 AM GMT
What other reason would there be for the winner to be 12/1, and the 4th 4/5 sixtwosix?

Just because the betting got it wrong doesn't alter the result.
