Cheltenham Festival: Flaxen Flare wins Fred Winter Juvenile Handicap Hurdle
The four-year-old gelding skipped four and a half lengths clear
Wednesday 13 March 2013
Flaxen Flare gave Ireland another winner at this year's Cheltenham Festival winner with a 25-1 success in the Fred Winter Juvenile Handicap Hurdle.
Trained in County Meath by Gordon Elliott, the four-year-old gelding skipped four and a half lengths clear of Caid Du Berlais at the line.
Flaxen Flare was in fourth place two out, at which stage Davy Condon went for broke.
The complexion to the Grade Three dramatically changed complexion from there on in as the winner swept into the lead at the top of the straight.
Elliott's charge continued to extend his advantage and ended up winning most convincingly.
Ptit Zig finished third, while Milord was fourth.
And why are 'southern' ways of speaking spreading north?
