LONDON, United Kingdom (AFP) – Cieren Fallon helped create British racing history on Saturday as he rode 200-1 shot Intercessor to win a novice race at Newbury.
Victory for Fallon, the son of retired six-time champion jockey Kieren Fallon, saw him reportedly equal the record for the longest-priced winner of a British flat race.
Intercessor’s only previous run saw him finish sixth, 26 lengths behind the winner, with the horse gelded afterwards.
The last 200/1 success was Dandy Flame at Wolverhampton in July 2016.
But the largest odds-against winner in a British race remains Equinoctial, sent off at 250/1 when triumphing over hurdles at Kelso back in November 1990.
