See You Then- The 1985 Champion Hurdle (Cheltenham)
Thu, Mar 1st, 2012
See You Then - Winner in the 1985, 1986 and 1987 Cheltenham Champion Hurdle. The Nicky Henderson and Steve Smith-Eccles combination paid off in three memorable races, where the brilliant trainer has to take the credit for being able to run the horse at all. See You Then was a fragile horse, with weak forelegs and it is one of training's outstanding achievements to have got him to win three successive Champion Hurdles. Here is the first of his wins at the 1985 Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham.
