Velka Pardubicka Steeplechase

Prague is one of Europe’s most fashionable cities, an historic baroque monument to Bohemia’s past, equally comparable to Florence, Venice and Rome for the majesty of its noble buildings, squares and cobbled streets.

As a true test of stamina, equine ability and horsemanship THE VELKA PARDUBICKA, run over 4m2½f and 31 varying obstacles over a mix of grass and light plough, ranks of equal importance in steeplechasing's role of honour to our own Grand National and The Maryland Hunt Cup.

Orphee Des Blins, ridden by Jan Faltejsek, made all the running in the 2013 race and cantered to a wide-margin victory for the second consecutive year. Nikas came home in second place with Klaus in third place and Kasim in fourth.
