Nicky Henderson’s Altior came out as the victor in the Queen Mother Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival, setting a record-equalling 18th consecutive success over jumps. He started as far from dominant but still managed to win by one-and-three-quarter lengths.

Before Altior’s entry at the Cheltenham Festival Races, he had an unbeaten record dating from October 2015, covering 12 steeplechases and five hurdle races. After winning the Queen Mother Champion Chase this year, he is now on par with Big Buck’s, the four-time champion of long-distance hurdling with a winning record that spanned 48 months from January 2009.

Other runners in the race Politologue and Sceau Royal appeared threatening, and for a moment, Henderson thought Altior’s unbeaten record would be finished. But the nine-year-old horse claimed the victory for the second year in a row.

According to Henderson, Altior is a hugely talented and brave runner. He said the horse had to have a little fight in the race, but Altior made it exciting for him and everyone else.

This win brings Altior’s record to four consecutive wins at the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival. As for Henderson, this is his sixth win in the Queen Mother Champion Chase and his 63rd win for The Festival overall.
