Recent from Racing TV:
Racing TV published this video item, entitled “AD HOC beats WHAT’S UP BOYS in a cracking renewal of the 2001 Whitbread Gold Cup at Sandown Park” – below is their description.
Ruby Walsh brings Ad Hoc home for the first of two victories in the race then known as the Whitbread, just seven days after the horse had finished second to Gingembre in the Scottish National.
Here they get the better of What’s Up Boys, still a novice at this stage, and an impressive winner of the Mildmay Novices’ Chase at Aintree on his previous start.
Walsh only rode the winner because his intended mount Papillon, fourth in a controversial renewal of the Grand National earlier in the month, was withdrawn due to the softening ground.

In This Story: Ireland
Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.
The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.
A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
