Nicky Henderson’s Horses Stranded as Newcastle Race Abandoned Due to Snow

, Nicky Henderson’s Horses Stranded as Newcastle Race Abandoned Due to Snow

Stable Stars Left Looking for a Place to Stay

Nicky Henderson's top horses, Constitution Hill and Shishkin, were left stranded in the north after the Newcastle race was called off due to snow and frost. The horses had already reached Darlington when the meeting was abandoned, leaving Henderson scrambling to find them and his staff a place to stay for the night.

Alternative Targets for Big Guns

As a result of the race cancellation, Henderson now needs to find alternative targets for his star horses. He revealed that if Constitution Hill saves the Fighting Fifth, he won't be able to run in both that and the Christmas Hurdle. Similarly, Shishkin's participation in the King George is now in doubt as running in that race first time out will be challenging.

Mixed Bag for Henderson at Newbury

Henderson experienced mixed results at Newbury on Friday. His novice hurdler, Jeriko Du Reponet, impressed on his Rules debut and is now considered an 8-1 shot for the Supreme at Cheltenham. However, Marie's Rock disappointed in the Long Distance Hurdle behind Dashel Drasher.

Next Stop: Kempton

Henderson mentioned that Kempton would likely be the next stop for Jeriko Du Reponet, a race that he has had success in the past.
