Katchit (born 23 February 2003) is an Irish Thoroughbred racehorse, the peak of whose flat racing and hurdling career came in 2008 when, against the odds, he won the Champion Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival. No Triumph Hurdle winner had gone on to win the Champion Hurdle since Persian War in 1968, and 73 five-year-olds had been beaten in the race since See You Then registered the last five-year-old success in 1985. By Kalanisi and out of Miracle, the six-year-old is owned by the D S J P Syndicate and trained by Alan King at Barbury Castle in Wiltshire.
