Arkle Back To Help The Blind Children of Ireland The most loved and celebrated horse in Irish history, Arkle will once more connect with the Irish people in a final gesture to mark the 50th anniversary of his Cheltenham Gold Cup win. Artist, Emma McDermott has just completed a life size bronze statue of Arkle, with the legendary jockey Pat Taaffe astride him. McDermott has created 27 miniatures, quarter size statues, of the full life-size statue to mark his 27 race wins. She has gifted the first in the series, known as the Maquette, to be auctioned in aid of ChildVision, the National Education Centre for Blind Children. McDermott's miniature statues of Arkle are in high demand, 10 of them already accounted for. The Maquette is the name given to the first in a series of miniatures. The second in this series was gifted last night at Windsor Castle by President Higgins to HRH Queen Elizabeth II to mark the first state visit by an Irish president to the UK. 'I was honoured for my work to be chosen for the exc ...

A lot of people have heard of A P McCoy and Ruby Walsh but not many have heard of Davy Russell who`s the best there is but won`t leave Ireland - got his just rewards today though - congratualtions Davy Russell on winning the Cheltenham Gold Cup. For me Cheltenham is a memorial to my dad that loved racing, was born on St Patrick`s Day and drunk Guiness.

Had a bet on the Cheltenham Gold Cup today on a horse called 'On His Own', who's original rider Ruby Walsh broke his arm in an earlier race and was replaced by the great David Casey who, after two false starts had a brilliant ride and came in 2nd. There was a stewards enquiry as to whether the winner 'Lord Windermere' should keep 1st place due to bumping into another horse but in the end the places stood as they were. Still I more than doubled my money so smiles all round :D One of only three races I ever bet on but it was exciting sitting in the betting shop with all the regular punters!

Cheltenham: Bobs Worth eyes 2013 repeat in Gold Cup By Frank Keogh BBC Sport, Cheltenham Cheltenham Festival 2014 Dates: Tuesday, 11 to Friday, 14 March Times: Gold Cup Fri, 15:20 GMT Coverage: All races on Radio 5 live & sports extra. Live text commentaries, results, reports on BBC Sport website Favourite Bobs Worth seeks a Cheltenham Gold Cup double on Friday as he bids to repeat last year's triumph in front of a sell-out 67,500 crowd. In-form jockey Barry Geraghty will ride the Nicky Henderson-trained steeplechaser who has won all five times he has run at the track. Silviniaco Conti, a late faller last year but the King George winner nine months later, is a leading contender for trainer Paul Nicholls. Last Instalment is third favourite in the 14-runner field after being cleared to run following a clear dope test amid a drugs inquiry faced by trainer Philip Fenton. The nine-year-old gelding's participation hinges on ground conditions, with a final decision on whether he competes made on Friday morning. ...

Cue Card OUT AND MY TENT TO FLY HOME Cue Card has pulled muscles and Dorset trainer Colin Tizzard has had no option but to take him out of the Betfred-sponsored Gold Cup and Ryanair Chase meaning Bobs Worth has one less to worry about in trying to regain the Blue Riband and was shortened slightly into 7/4. A dual Festival winner having claimed the Champion Bumper in 2010 and the Ryanair Chase last year, the eight-year-old appeared bound for a tilt at the Cheltenham Gold Cup this time around and no doubt connections will be very disappointed. Our next tip for the first day of the Festival comes in the Champion Hurdle which looks set to be the race of the meeting with some quality horses set to do battle with year last year’s winner Hurricane Fly the one to beat. There is no doubting the Fly’s class and speed but he is facing some shrewd challengers this year including last year’s Supreme Novice runner up (MY TENT OR YOURS) and third placed Jezki along with the Neptune and Triumph winners in The New O ...

LAST season’s Cheltenham Gold Cup one-two, Bobs Worth and Sir Des Champs, both have questions to answer as they clash again in the Grade 1 Lexus Chase on Saturday.
Well Boys, Girls and my little Diddy Men yesterday was a great day, yes Liverpool lost but I got to watch my horse 'Silviniaco Conti' do the impossible after about 18 months of losing people were saying 'He has no chance', 'He needs to retire' and my favourite quote 'He won't win today because all these horses have beat him'. So what happens the race goes off, the crowds settle down and 'Silviniaco Conti' and 'Cue Card' both lead all the way and on the way home 'The crowds stood up and screamed them home' and I stood outside on camera with Adam there and I shouted, screamed and begged for 'Silviniaco Conti' to win and on the last fence they both jumped but 'Cue Card' couldn't keep up anymore he lost stamina but 'Silviniaco Conti' roared after jumping the last fence, he found amazing stamina and speed and he won it was amazing I was crying my eyes out, I was dancing and I was thanking the heavens he achieved his greatest goal and now he'll go for the ultimate challenge and goal 'The Cheltenham Gold Cup' ti ...
Round 12, The William Hill King George VI Chase FULL RESULT & LATEST TABLE: 1st: Silviniaco Conti 7/2 2nd: Cue Card 100/30 jf 3rd: Al Ferof 5/1 A fabulous tactically run race saw the latest emerging star from the Ditcheat stable, Silviniaco Conti, win a well deserved 4 length victory over the dynamic Cue Card. These two and Long Run took up the running and pretty much had the field beat at the third last. Long Run who kept up with the pace well again failed to stay and left Cue Card and Silviniaco Conti to battle out the finish. Approaching the second last, Cue Card was full of running and looked to have the race at his mercy until hitting a dead spot, allowing Conti to take full advantage. The ground was a little tackier than at Haydock in the Betfair so it's not surprising that a better staying chaser like Silviniaco Conti took the win today. However, Cue Card jumped beautifully and would probably have Conti beat on better ground which might well be the case come next March for the big one. Whether ...
Cue Card could bid to avenge his King George VI Chase defeat in the Cheltenham Gold Cup in March.
What an awesome King George VI with some old favourites fading and Cue Card looking a different class two out, however with Silviniaco Conti finding a turn of foot to win impressively - this is clearly now a potential Cheltenham Gold Cup to watch!
Well I've been to the sales from the comfort of my armchair and purchased my tickets for The Cheltenham Gold Cup and Royal Ascot. And a bit left over for a new hat. Happy New Year.
BOXING DAY as defined by Wikipedia. In the United Kingdom, it is traditional for the Premier League (England and Wales), Scottish Premier League (Scotland) and Irish Premier League (Northern Ireland), as well as the lower divisions and rugby leagues, to hold a full programme of football and rugby league matches on Boxing Day. Traditionally, matches on Boxing Day are played against local rivals. This was originally to avoid teams and their fans having to travel a long distance to an away game on the day after Christmas Day. It also makes the day an important one in the sporting calendar. In Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, much anticipated Test matches are played on Boxing Day. Prior to the formation of leagues, a number of important rugby fixtures took place on Boxing Day notably Llanelli v London Welsh and Leicester v The Barbarians. In horse racing, there is the King George VI Chase at Kempton Park Racecourse in Surrey. It is the second most prestigious chase in Britain, after the Cheltenham Gol ...
KING GEORGE DAY! 12.50 - Kempton John Ferguson's Dubai Prince looked to win smartly enough on his first time out and will probably come on for the run, but my selection VANITEUX looked every part as good in a better race when dispatching the re-opposing Champagne At Tara last time, and can land the spoils for Geraghty and Henderson who have a crazy strike rate around here. Currently 3/1. 1.25 - Kempton (Already advised) LOOSE CHIPS loves it around these pastures and won't be fazed by the testing ground. The race lacks any real depth and quality and should Noel Fehily get him settled and jumping well the 9/1 on offer could well be made a mockery of. 1.45 - Wetherby - Rowland Meyrick TULLAMORE DEW looks a fascinating entry into this and although hasn't won in a long time his mark has come down drastically and at 10/1 can run into a place at minimum. 2.35 - Kempton - Xmas Hurdle Not a tip but for those asking who I'm on - MY TENT OR YOURS. 3.10 - Kempton - King George VI Chase This is the big one, and the se ...

Keta Hagen Dessie, the great grey, rides off into the sunset By Neil Tweedie The Daily Telegraph Last Updated: 2:25am GMT 14/11/2006 Just occasionally along comes a racehorse who makes his jockey appear like mere freight, an animal far more famous – to the non-racing fraternity at least – than the man riding on his back. Arkle was like that, and Red Rum. And Dessie – Desert Orchid, the superlative steeplechaser – who died yesterday at the age of 27. Weeping over the death of a racehorse is probably going too far, even for the anthropomorphic British. There was, however, genuine sadness at the news that a great character had passed away. The winner of the 1989 Cheltenham Gold Cup, one of the most dramatic steeplechases seen, and four King George VI chases at Kempton Park, he died in his stable at Newmarket after a short illness. David Elsworth, who trained Dessie throughout his career, said: "There was no stress. He departed from this world with dignity and no fuss. He did his dying in the same ind ...
