In Cheltenham festival 2019, Paisely Park wins the sun racing Stayer’s hurdle. He has made made his victory a fairy tale for his owner Andrew Gemmell and horse Faugheen.
Because Adam has been blind from birth, he never saw a race horse. First of all he joined a horse riding for the blind project. But his love for horse racing ignited when he visits to York Racecourse. Certainly he would ask the school maintenance man to place bets for him.
Most noteworthy the horse Faugheen, on which Park ride on in the race was nearly died two years back. Faugheen nicknamed as ‘wining machine’ is a former champion hurdle. This is how Paisley Park turns this impossible in to a fairy tale by winning the Stayers hurdle race.
Paisley Park heads the field and faces 17 rivals. He confirm himself as a top performer. The Emma Lavelle-trained horse is unbeaten. As a result, they both bring out the best in Faugheen and set him back on victory path.
Above all, Faugheen bids to record a third success at the festival in the £325,000 Stayer hurdle Race. Seems like Paisley Park, the 6-4 favorite, rates the obvious danger after carrying all before him this season.
Certainly on official ratings, Park is rated only 1lb superior to Faugheen. Paisley park rides in the same colors of owner Gemmell favorite football team, West ham united. Joe Colliver reported a “great ride” on Sam Spinner, adding: “We were just beaten by a better horse.”
