Hardy Eustace

2004 Champion Hurdle

There was somewhat of an upset in the 2004 running of the Champion Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival, but little were we to know that it was just the beginning of another Champion Hurdle legend being born. Hardy Eustace virtually made all to win at 33/1 for Ireland and trainer Dessie Hughes. The outgoing champion Rooster Booster battled gamely back in second place whilst Intersky Falcon finished back in third.
