Al Boum Photo Has Won The Cheltenham Gold Cup.

: 03/15/2019 - 15:59

The Willie Mullins-trained Al Boum Photo has won the Cheltenham Gold Cup. 

Paul Townend rode the 12-to-1 shot to victory 2-and-a-half lengths ahead of 22-to-1 shot Anibale Fly, with the grey Bristol de Mai third at 18-to-1.

It's Mullins' 64th winner at the Cheltenham Festival, but his first ever Gold Cup. 


Rachael Blackmore has become the second female jockey in as many days to win a Grade One at the Cheltenham Festival. 

She piloted 50-to-1 shot Minella Indo to victory in the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle. 


20-to-1 shot Pentland Hills was a surprise winner of the JCB Triumph Hurdle - the opening race of the final day. 

However, Joseph O'Brien says his yard is devastated by the fatal injury suffered by the favourite for that race - Sir Erec. 

The Mark Walsh mount sustained the injury while going over a fence.

The Randox Health County Handicap Hurdle was won by 12-to-1 shot Ch'tibello.
