Cue Card: A Tribute to a Special Horse
Drawing on the unique resources of the Racing Post, the tale of one of the sport's most popular racehorses is told. Since almost literally bursting onto the scene in the 2010 Weatherbys Champion Bumper at Cheltenham, when an unconsidered 40/1 shot, he hasn't left the Racing public's affections. Charismatic connections have helped colour the story but it is the achievement on the racecourse, the toughness in battle and the willingness to do it all over again, year in year out, even after that crunching, "million pound fall" in the 2016 Gold Cup that has garnered this horse such a remarkable following. With the blessing and help of the Bishops (Cue Card's owners), plus the most heartfelt work of the Racing Post's formidable writers through the years, a fitting tribute is produced to a really special horse.
