A fabulous duel purpose horse, Overturn is the only horse to win Newcastle’s two big races in the calendar, the Northumberland Plate on the Flat in 2010 and the Fighting Fifth Hurdle. He defeated 2010 Champion Hurdle hero Binocular for his Fighting Fifth triumph.

In 2012 Overturn and his main jockey Jason Maguire carried the Olympic Torch through the streets of Chester and onto Chester Racecourse.
