At The Races published this video item, entitled “WOW! Shishkin defeats Energumene in the SBK Clarence House Chase at Ascot!” – below is their description.
One of the most highly anticipated clashes in recent times, star 2 mile chasers Shishkin and Energumene finally clashed at Ascot for the Grade 1 SBK Clarence House Chase.
After Willie Mullins’ Energumene pulled out of the Arkle at the Cheltenham Festival in 2021, this was the first time he had met Nicky Henderson’s Shishkin, with the former making the trip over from Ireland.
One for the ages!

About This Source - At The Races
Sky Sports Racing (formerly At The Races) is a British pay television channel devoted to horse racing. It is a joint venture between Sky Group and Arena Racing Company.
Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.
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.
