What are the craziest long shot winners?
With the jumps season now in full swing many of the stars have already stamped there marks ahead of Cheltenham in March. The return of Faugheen ‘the machine’ was one of the most pleasing to racing purists. He had been out of action for nearly two years before making a return. Faugheen continued from where he left off completely dominating a high class field by 16 lengths with ease. The horse is without a doubt one of the greatest hurdlers we have ever seen and will take all the beating now wherever he goes for the rest of the season. His major target will no doubt be regaining his champion hurdle crown on the first day of the festival in March. You can have your own horse racing bet on Faugheen for the big one in March as he is the relative 6/4 favourite currently.
There will no doubt be some shocks as it is horse racing and there has been some crazy results over the years such as the stunning victory of Michelle Payne aboard Prince of Penzance back in 2015 at 100/1.
