Horse Racing: Targets of So Young and Zaidpour revealed

The Cheltenham Festival has been scheduled to take place at the Cheltenham racecourse in March. The fans of the sport and all those involved in the horse business are extremely enthusiastic about the event as it will be providing some quality racing in the country and will be featuring some of the best racehorses. The trainers are all set to send out their colts to the prestigious festival, as it is one of the most exalted events of the spring racing term.

The famed trainer Willie Mullins revealed the festival plans of two of his trainees, So Young and Zainpour. It has been reported that the former colt will be taking part in the Neptune Investment Management Novices’ Hurdle. The champion racehorse was confirmed for this event by his trainer on Wednesday after he impressively claimed the Punchestown meeting and now is being seen as a future superstar.

The five-year old racehorse trains under the care of the champion trainer Willie Mullins and thus is expected to give a spectacular performance in the Neptune, as he is as short as 10-1 for this event. The trainer has decided not to send out Zaispour for the same event as So Young. Zaidpour will instead be participating in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle for which he is the 8-1 favourite with the sponsors.

Zaidpour will also be contending the Deloitte Novice Hurdle that has been scheduled to take place at Leopardstown on Saturday. Talking to the correspondents about the future plans of the racehorse, Mullins was reported as saying, “We’ll keep our optionsopen and see what happens on Saturday, but my feeling is So Young will go for Neptune and Zaidpour will go for the Supreme.”

This was revealed by the trainer after So Young clinched victory by a distance of five lengths against his rival Big Game Hunter.

Before the second race that was started at the Punchestown racecourse in the memory of the jockey Jack Tyner, a minute’s silence was observed. The amateur rider passes away on Monday after he sustained intense head injuries.
