Desert Orchid was a grey English racehorse who achieved a revered and. Esteemed status within National Hunt racing where he was much loved. For his front running style, iron will, and extreme versatility. He first raced in 1983 and fell heavily at the last fence in a novice hurdle at. Kempton Park, his last race was at the same track in 1991 when he. Again fell, but it is what he did in between that earned him the accolade. Of being the fifth best National Hunt racehorse by Timeform. The highlight of his illustrious career must be the four King George VI. Chase wins at Kempton on Boxing Days and also his Cheltenham. Gold Cup victory in 1989 was very memorable. The Danbury Mint have produced an excellent figurine to commemorate. The great horse, who is negotiating a water jump, keeping his feet dry in. It has been well made and painted, it is in very good condition. Like new, and has a brass name plate attached and comes with a Certificate.
