Jockey: Ruby Walsh 

Sire: Robin Des Champs

Dam: Vega

Did you know: One of the great National Hunt race mares of all time, Quevega was a winner 16 times in her 24-race career. She won 13 of her 18 starts over hurdles for Willie Mullins and was partnered to victory by Ruby Walsh on 11 occasions. Racing in the colours of the Hammer & Trowel Syndicate, she won the World Series Hurdles at Punchestown on four occasions and, more famously, took the Mares' Hurdles at the Cheltenham Festival on six successive years from 2009 to 2014. In so doing, she set a new record for greatest number of wins at the Cheltenham Festival, eclipsing Golden Miller's record of five wins in the Gold Cup. Quevega was retired in May, 2014 after finishing second to Jetson in the World Series Hurdle at Punchestown.
