Poker related winner at Cheltenham yesterday

Thursday, 18 March 2010

Plenty of poker sites have got into the spirit of the Cheltenham Festival offering a host of tournaments related to the National Hunt extravaganza. Few can have expected that the horses would reciprocate by offering a poker related winner.

That was exactly what happened in the Chase Challenge Cup which was won by 14/1 shot Poker de Sivola. Ridden by jockey Katie Walsh, the seven-year-old withstood a strong challenge from Becauseicouldntsee to claim the win.

"I'm lost for words," said a tearful Walsh. "I don't want to sound soft or anything, but this is the best day of my life.

Trainer Ferdy Murphy added, “She gave him a fantastic ride”.

WilliamHill, Betfair and BetFred are all offering Cheltenham related poker tournaments today if you fancy some racing related poker action.
