The Velká Pardubická is a famous cross-country steeplechase run in Pardubice, Czech Republic. The race was first run in 1874 and it takes place annually on the second Sunday in October. It is run over a distance of 6.9km (4.28 Miles) and has 31 obstacles, usually taking around 9-10 minutes for the horses to finish the course.
The racecourse is located less than an hours train journey from Prague so is easily accessible for a day trip whilst spending a few days in Czech Republic's Capital City! There are four qualifying races during the season all leading up to this main event in October.
In 2016 Charme Look won with Jockey Jan Faltejsek on board, a four-time winner of this race!
