Sire de Grugy win delights Prestons
- From the section Horse Racing
Steve Preston and his son Sean cannot hide their delight following Sire de Grugy's victory in the Queen Mother Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival.
Steve's family clubbed together to buy the horse for his 50th birthday and he explains how they never considered he would win such a prestigious race.
The 11-4 favourite, ridden by Jamie Moore and trained by his father Gary, has now won five out of his last six races and ends his bad luck at Cheltenham where he finished second on each of his last two races.
