Sign o' the Times - Why Prince fans could be in the purple at Cheltenham

Full article here ...https://www.bbc.co.uk/spo...g/46993277

Excert....

Paisley Park represents the Prince fans who would be kings - and queens - as he lines up in the Cleeve Hurdle, as the countdown to March's Cheltenham Festival gathers pace at the course's Trials Day.

Named by owner Andrew Gemmell after the vast home and recording studio complex in Minnesota, USA owned by the late music genius - of whom he is an enthusiastic fan - the horse has been rocking and rolling his way through the jumps season.

Under the guidance of trainer Emma Lavelle and her ex-jockey husband Barry Fenton, who count Prince's Purple Rain and 1999 among their playlist favourites, Paisley Park has made it three wins from three starts - at Aintree, Haydock and in the Grade One Long Walk Hurdle at Ascot - since late October.

He won, that's 5 out of 9 races now.

I got £48 back, not a lot but I'm happy!

Might put a bit more on him next time.
