Big Buck’s Posts 16th Straight Win At Cheltenham
Big Buck’s has continued his impressive winning streak to post victory in the Ladbrokes World Hurdle on Thursday March 15, 2012, at Cheltenham Racecourse.
The Cadoudal gelding has now won 16 races in a row and has claimed an unbelievable four World Hurdle titles.
Big Buck’s has won 18 of his 23 race starts and has earned more than £1.8 million in prize money.
Trainer Paul Nicholls was thrilled with the result.
“Apart from Rock On Ruby, Cheltenham had been a disaster,” said Nicholls.
“I had told everybody we’d had this cough and although the older horses seem OK, a lot were running badly.
“This was the one race of the whole week I wanted to win more than anything.
“I want to win the Gold Cup with Kauto Star, but just having him here is a privilege and I wanted to win this race for Andy and for racing really.
“This was the target of his whole season. To win four World Hurdles and 16 in a row is phenomenal.”
Big Buck’s began him dream run when winning the Unicorn Homes Handicap Hurdle at Cheltenham on January 1, 2009, and it yet to lose a race since that date.
Since then, the nine-year-old gelding has won a variety of Grade 1 and 2 races, including the Grade 1 Sportingbet Long Distance Hurdle in November last year.
