Thousand Stars wins French Champion Hurdle
Sun, Jun 10th, 2012
Thousand Stars landed a second French Champion Hurdle under Ruby Walsh and provided Willie Mullins with a fourth win in the race this afternoon at Auteuil. Speaking after the race Mullins commented:
"He's an iron horse. He's just too tough and it's amazing how he's raced from the Morgiana (at Punchestown in November) up to today and not missed a Festival.He pulled out as fresh as paint today. He's so tough. To win a race like this two years in a row is just fantastic. He seems to love this track and these hurdles suit him."
Mullins had previously won the race with Nobody Told Me in 2003 and Rule Supreme in 2004.
