Talent wins this year’s Grand Pardubice steeplechase

Ten-year-old chestnut stallion Talent and his jockey Pavel Složil won this year’s Grand Pardubice steeplechase on Sunday. The horse from the DS Kabelkovi stable came in front of Evžen, ridden by Jaroslav Myška, and Mr Spex led by the jockey Jan Kratochvíl. Just nine out of the 18 horses taking part in the race made it to the finish line of one of the hardest steeplechases in Europe.

The 6.9km race, in which horses above the age of six are allowed to compete, awards a 3 million crown prize to the winner.
