2019 Stayers' Hurdle Preview

We all know Willie Mullins is a genius, but to get Penhill to Cheltenham last year - on the back of an 11-month layoff – in good enough shape to win the Stayers’ Hurdle was quite miraculous. The 2017 Albert Bartlett champ jumped nicely throughout the race and had enough left in the tank to outmuscle Supasundae in the closing stages and claim his second Festival title.

Mullins employed a similar training regime for Quevega, who dominated the Mares’ Hurdle for half-a-decade. It was a back-up plan to go to Cheltenham without a run last year, but it’s what the team have been planning for Penhill since the end of last season this time around and who’s to say the Tony Bloom-owned eight-year-old won’t make it three Festival wins on the bounce.

Stayers’ Hurdle

The oldest of all the four recognised Championship races at the Cheltenham Festival, the best staying hurdlers have been battling it out for the honour of being crowned Stayers’ Hurdle champion for the better part of a century. To be considered amongst the greats of the hurdling game, a victory in the Stayers’ Hurdle is a must-have on any horses list of accomplishments. 

Silver Bay claimed back-to-back Stayers’ Hurdle victories during the 1910’s and he’s since been joined on the roll of honour by other multiple winners like Baracouda, Inglis Drever and four-time champion, Big Buck’s.
