Hurricane Fly Joins

12th Mar 2016

Champion hurdler Hurricane Fly joins the Irish National Stud’s ‘Living Legends’ team alongside Beef Or Salmon, Hardy Eustace, Kicking King, Moscow Flyer and Rite Of Passage.

Hurricane Fly, the son of Montjeu, was foaled at the Irish National Stud. He was bred to be a flat horse and raced and won on the flat in France. When he returned to Ireland in 2008, he went into training with Willie Mullins and won his first maiden hurdle at Punchestown. He went on to win 24 of his 32 start over hurdles, including 22 Grade 1 races which is why he is considered one of the greatest hurdlers of all time.

22 Grade 1 wins include:
