VIDEO: The incredible rags-to-riches story of Tobefair

Everyone loves a good rags-to-riches story and there are a bunch when it comes to the world of racing. There aren’t many better stories than Tobefair who will be running as the favourite for the Pertemps Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival on Thursday.

Tobefair’s story started just outside the Welsh town of Pembroke, where 17 pub regulars bought Tobefair for free! The seven year old has since exceeded all expectations and his victory at Warwick a few weeks ago is the latest of a winning run that stretches back to June 2015.

Can the rags to riches story reach uncharted territory and win at The Festival fending off challenges from horses trained by Willie Mullins and Paul Nicholls? Only time will tell.

Check out the video below to find out the incredible journey that Tobefair has been on so far.

Shared Ownership

Tobefair proves its not always the richest owners who buy the best horses.

Shared racehorse ownership means you can live the dream for a fraction of the perceived cost, have a fun and sociable time with like-minded people and get closer to action.
