I am in tears. Unbelievable! Hurricane Fly won the Irish Champion Hurdle for the fifth(!) time - his 22nd Grade 1 victory and his tenth victory out of ten at Leopardstown. Ruby Wash was on board. 25 January 2015.
Arctic Fire and Paul Townend finished second, The Fly’s younger rival Jezki, ridden by Tony McCoy, finished third after making a bad error at the last, Tiger Roll and Bryan Cooper finished fourth, Plinth and Robbie Power fifth and Fiscal Focus and Mikey Fogarty sixth.
Many congratulations to all connections! :-)
