Barney Naughton owner of Solfen 18, Ireland (Jim McGrath's Cheltenham Festival Finest)

The 20 best horses to grace the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival as chosen by Jim McGrath. In 1960, Barney's horse Solfen made racing history at the three-day Cheltenham Racing Festival. The horse won a three mile chase on Day Two and a three mile hurdle on Day Three. Solfen's first race, the Broadway Novices Chase - now the Royal & Sun Alliance Chase - was noteworthy in that the eight year old gelding romped home by twenty-five lengths. Solfen was ridden by Pat Taaffe and twenty-one horses ran.
