Don Cossack returns home

Cossack won the Gold Cup by four and a half lengths

Gold Cup hero Don Cossack was paraded through trainer-Gordon Elliott’s hometown of Summerhill in Meath on Saturday afternoon.

Winning jockey Bryan Cooper was also present as thousands of people lined the streets to celebrate a brilliant Cheltenham victory.

"It was an amazing day - I can't really describe what it felt like,” said Elliott.

"The Gold Cup and Grand National are the two races you really want to win. It's just unbelievable to do it.

"I've got good staff and good owners, Michael (O'Leary) and Gigginstown have been big supporters of mine, it's just a dream come true.

"We knew when the ground came right, everything was right on the day, and it just felt right.

"This is definitely his time of year, he's a different horse on better ground. He doesn't look impressive on soft ground, he does it workmanlike.

"He's won a Gold Cup now and we're all very proud of him."
