Dawalan named Champion Steeplechase Horse for ECB Spa owner Irv Naylor. Dawalan took full effect in the rich Grand National Hurdle Stakes at Far Hills. Ridden by Ross Geraghty, Dawalan won the richest race ever run at a National Steeplechase Association meet by a length. A month later he stood in the winner's circle at Camden after demolishing 10 rivals in the Colonial Cup, the final grade I of the season.
