The top 5 Jumps and Flat races of the last decade
It’s coming to the end of the decade, and what a decade it’s been for racing.
So many incredible moments that will live long in the memory, we had possibly the best Flat racehorses that ever lived and one of the best Cheltenham Gold Cups ever.
There’s so many races to choose from that would quite rightly stand in a list of one of best races of the decade. However we’ve chosen our top five Jumps and Flat races of the last decade, whether the actual race was an epic battle or the race had a particular significance.
Do you agree with our list, let us know what race you think deserves to make the top five races of the decade?
