Watch: Carnage! Punchestown Produces One Of The Craziest Race Endings Ever

Watch: Carnage! Punchestown Produces One Of The Craziest Race Endings Ever
By Maurice Brosnan Updated

There was incredible drama in the last race of the day at Punchestown today. It all kicked off as the field was approaching the last, as Al Boum Photo & Finians Oscar veered right and missed the fence after Monalee had fallen. In the end, the Storyteller emerged from the chaos to land a crucial win for Gordon Elliott & Davy Russell.

The race provoked a bewildered reaction online.

Speaking to RTE after the race, Ruby Walsh felt it may have been a case that the jockey thought he had to go around the fence.

I think Paul Townend thinks he needs to bypass the last. I don't know why he thought that. I don't know what happened.

The win was huge for Elliot who saw his for the Irish Trainers' Championship take a hit early thanks to successful rides by Un De Sceaux and True Self for Willie Mullins.
