Get Me Out Of Here

Age: 8

Trainer: Jonjo O'Neill

Notable Race Wins:-

Totesport Trophy: 2010

Get Me Out Of Here is one of the unluckiest horses when it comes to the Cheltenham Festival as the Jonjo O'Neill-trained gelding has managed to finish second in both 2010 and 2011.

As a smart novice he head to the Supreme Novices' Hurdle in 2010, but came up against the classy Menorah, who edged him out by a head and then he returned to Prestbury Park 12 months later and was edged out in the Vincent O'Brien County Hurdle by Final Approach.

Sent for home over the last flight by AP McCoy, the Jackdaws Castle inmate looked the winner for all money, but was swamped by the WIllie Mullins-trained runner in the last stride to heap more agony on to his avid followers.

He did bag one big success in the Totesport Trophy, but since then he has just found one too good and will be hoping the 2011/2012 season can finally be a successful one for hte JP McManus-owned runner.

It is unsure what path O'Neill will elect to take with his seven-year-old, but he has been priced up for the 2012 Champion Hurdle and could well be a lively outsider for the contest come March.

However, he may stick to the handicap hurdle contests and there will be a plethora of contests available throughout the season and he is certainly one to keep an eye on.  If he does go down that route then the County Hurdle could well be on the agenda again at the 2012 Cheltenham Festival.

Potential Races for 2011/2012 Season

Champion Hurdle

Vincent O'Brien County Hurdle

Form for 2011/2012 Season

  • 19/11/11 - Timeform Radio Handicap Hurdle- Haydock Park (5th of 12 - SP 15/2) - A pleasing return the track in a competitive handicap hurdle, Get Me Out Of Here struggled to reel in the leaders when held up towards the back of the field.  Eventually finishing fifth, AP McCoy just struggled to get a turn of foot out of his challenger and he will certainly come on for the outing.
  • 10/12/11 - Relkeel Hurdle- Cheltenham (2nd of 5 - SP 8/1) - Always up against it up to the classy Oscar Whisky, Get Me Out Of Here wasn't disgraced when finishing a one-and-three-quarter length second to Nicky Henderson's runner in the Relkeel Hurdle at Cheltenham.  However, he may be flattered by the distance between them at the finish, but still, it was an encouraging performance as he stayed well up the hill.
  • 17/02/12 - Betfair Hurdle - Newbury (2nd of 20 - SP 14/1) - Get Me Out Of Here produced another stunning effort in the Betfair Hurdle, but was outclassed by Zarkandar in the closing stages.  He battled to the front in the closing stages, but was overtaken in the dying strides as the Champion Hurdle hope stormed clear.
  • 14/03/12 - Coral Cup - Cheltenham (2nd of 28 - SP 6/1JF) - Another gladiatorial effort from Get Me Out Of Here saw him finish second in another competitive Cheltenham Festival handicap, as he was just edged out by Son Of Flicka in the Coral Cup.  Positioned well throughout, it had looked as though he would be able to hold on, but Son Of Flicka stormed to the front late on to bag victory by three-and-a-half lengths.
