Fri, Feb 24th, 2012

Desert Orchid (April 11, 1979 -- November 13, 2006), known as Dessie, was an English racehorse. The grey achieved iconic status within National Hunt racing, where he was much loved by supporters for his front-running attacking style, iron will and extreme versatility. He was rated the 5th best National Hunt horse of all time by Timeform. He is considered by many as the greatest jumper of all time and also the greatest front runner in history. Here he is winning the 1989 Cheltenham Gold Cup with jockey Simon Sherwood.
