Sprinter on show at Punchestown
on 20 April 2017
"For us, Sprinter Sacre's visit to Punchestown was one of the greatest and most memorable day's racing we've had"

SPRINTER Sacre will be paraded on the opening day of the Punchestown Festival on Tuesday.

It is four years since the Nicky Henderson-trained superstar rounded off an incredible campaign with victory in the BoyleSports Champion Chase at the Co Kildare circuit.

Sprinter Sacre added to his victories in the Queen Mother Champion Chase at Cheltenham and the Melling Chase at Aintree on what proved to be his only start on Irish soil in front of a record crowd for the opening day of the 2013 Festival.

Henderson said: "For us, Sprinter Sacre's visit to Punchestown was one of the greatest and most memorable day's racing we've had.

"The reception we received was unforgettable and we are delighted to be able to bring him to Ireland to say goodbye.

"This is definitely his farewell tour - he's like the Rolling Stones!"

Sprinter Sacre won 18 of his 24 starts before being retired due to injury prior to the start of this season.
