Sunday lunch at The Ballymac reveals a Ballymagovern connection to legend Quevega

Quevega (foaled 11 April 2004) is a retired French-bred Irish-trained National Hunt mare, best known for winning the David Nicholson Mares’ Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival a record six times in a row, beating the previous record set by Golden Miller’s five consecutive Gold Cups in the 1930s. She also won the World Series Hurdle over three miles four times, but was beaten in her attempt at a fifth successive win at the 2014 Festival.
