End of an Era
Punters everywhere are mourning the loss of the legendary racehorse Cyrname, who has sadly passed away at the age of 11. Trained by Paul Nicholls, this winning machine was a Grade 1 champion and will always be remembered for putting an end to Altior's world-record 19-race winning streak.
A Legendary Duel
In a historic showdown at Ascot in November 2019, Cyrname, owned by Johnny de la Hey, defeated Nicky Henderson's stable star Altior by two lengths. This remarkable victory forever changed the racing landscape, capturing the attention of horse racing enthusiasts around the world.
Fans Mourn the Loss
News of Cyrname's passing has left fans heartbroken. On social media, one punter expressed their condolences, saying, "Wow, that is so heartbreaking. Sincere condolences to all." Another fan shared their memories of Cyrname's triumph, stating, "Will never forget him beating the mighty Altior's streak. Thoughts are with his connections."
A Record of Excellence
Cyrname had an impressive racing career, winning eight out of his 23 races and earning over £350,000. His golden period came in the winter of 2019, where he dominated the bet365 Handicap Chase at Ascot, winning by a staggering 21 lengths. He continued his winning streak with a 17-length victory in the Grade 1 Betfair Ascot Chase.
Trials and Tribulations
Cyrname faced some setbacks in his career, including wind surgery and a second-place finish to Clan Des Obeaux in the King George. However, he made a triumphant return by winning the Charlie Hall, but unfortunately, his racing days were cut short, as he was pulled up in his final two races.
