Elliott To Decide On Samcro And His Participation On Cheltenham Festival Races Today



Trainer Gordon Elliott said that he would announce the status of Samcro’s entries for the Cheltenham Festival races on Tuesday. Today, he is set to gallop along with his fellow festival entry horses.

Seven-year-old Samcro was recently diagnosed with a lung infection after running at Leopardstown. As a result, all plans for him for the rest of the season were temporarily set aside. But this can finally change as the horse started to become more upbeat, according to Elliott.

As of now, Samcro is still in the Unibet Champion Hurdle of the Cheltenham Festival 2019 but has a low odd for the Sun Racing Stayers’ Hurdle at 5-1.

The Gigginstown House Stud-owned horse is one of the most prominent names in racing. He caused some uproar in the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle one year ago. However, things did not go as planned since then. After the Cheltenham Festival 2018, Samcro fell at Punchestown. And even though connections want to give him a Champion Hurdle campaign this season, he was defeated in three outings so far. First was last November at Down Royal, then at Newcastle, and finally in the Ryanair Hurdle at Leopardstown.
