Big Buck’s loses unbeaten streak over hurdles

January 25, 2014

CHELTENHAM, England (AP) — Big Buck’s, one of Britain’s top horses, lost his 18-race unbeaten record over hurdles when he finished third in the Cleeve Hurdle at Cheltenham on Saturday.

The 11-year-old Big Buck’s was running his first race since December 2012 because of a tendon injury and was reeled in over the closing stages by 66-1 shot Knockara Beau.

The four-time World Hurdle champion’s last defeat came in the 2008 Hennessy Gold Cup, when he competed over fences.
