Must See: Horse wins by 46 lengths in Ireland
- Gunfire Reef recorded a 46 length win overnight at Limerick
- The victory was one to savour for favourite backers
- The horse justified the short price by smashing his rivals in epic fashion
Irish racing fans were treated to an rout of epic proportions overnight after Gunfire Reef recorded a stunning 46 length win at Limerick.
You read that correctly, 46 lengths.
Gunfire Reef, which jumped as a $2.10 favourite with Sportsbet was expected to be highly competitive in the three mile handicap hurdle event, but few would have foreseen the ease in which the ten-year-old gelding would win.
The Margaret Mullins-trained horse cruised around the track and ran his rivals into the ground, delivering a pasting that favourite backers dream of when they take the short price.
Incredibly, there's a full ten seconds after Gunfire Reef crosses the line before the next competitor even comes within the camera shot.
For Australian racing fans, we may have found our next jumping cult hero.
