Paddy Power will refund all bets, singles and multiples, ante post and day of race on Oscar Delta after a dramatic crash in the CGA Foxhunter Chase at Cheltenham on Friday.
It’s one of Paddy’s Justice Payouts as Salsify retained the Chase only after leader Oscar Delta hit a post at an intersection and unseated 18-year-old jockey Jane Mangan when closing in on the finish fine.
That crash left 2/1 favourite Salsify, under Colman Sweeney, clear to win. Divine Intavention (50/1) and Cottage Oak (9/1) completed the places.
On a very serious note, nobody likes to see a jockey fall and after four days of incredible racing at the Cheltenham Festival they should all be applauded for their efforts. They are a huge part of making racing the exciting sport it is and every time they ride they put themselves at risk of serious injury. This year’s Festival has featured some thrilling action and every jockey has played a massive part.
