Watch: Emotional Katie Reflects On Tough Day For The Walsh Family

Watch: Emotional Katie Reflects On Tough Day For The Walsh Family
By Maurice Brosnan

Katie Walsh added to her Cheltenham success today in the bumper as she led 25/1 shot Relegate home to land the last race of the day for Willie Mullins.

It was a remarkable ride by the Irish women, but tinted with sadness as Walsh reflected on her brother's misfortune earlier in the day.

Ruby Walsh was stood down for the remainder of the festival after a heavy fall left him with a reported broken leg. It happened during the RSA Insurance Novices' Chase and is feared to be a reoccurrence of the broken leg he suffered at Punchestown last November. He was helped from the course by his father, Ted.


Walsh was just happy her brother "was up and he was talking."

There is no doubt Ruby Walsh is one of the toughest jockeys in racing and we look forward to watching him romp up the hill aboard a winner in festivals to come.
