  • Description

    The eightieth annual Pardubice Steeple-Chase in Prague, one of the most difficult horse races in the world, was won by a Bulgarian mare on Sunday (October 11).

    Twenty-three horses from four countries competed in the 7,000 metre (four miles) race for a top prize of 200,000 crowns (GBP11,500). (Official rate of exchange).

    Several riders and their mounts were eliminated at the difficult Taxi's jump, and the Czechoslovakian favourite, Harlequin, fell at Serpent Jump.

    Several more horses went down at the notorious Great Water - where the eventual winner, Vezna II, ridden by jockey Milev, picked up the lead and stayed there against opposition from Czechoslovak Lukava and fellow national Kostrava. They finished in that order to cheers from the crowd.
