MIDNIGHT STROLL wins the Tattersalls Ireland/EBF Auction Maiden Hurdle at Galway

MIDNIGHT STROLL produced an impressive performance to win the fourth race in the Tattersalls Ireland / EBF Auction Maiden Hurdle series by one and a half lenghts at Galway on Sunday.  MIDNIGHT STROLL was purchased at the Tattersalls Ireland August National Hunt Sale for €30,000. Robert Tyner received the winning trophy on behalf of owner Brendan Keogh from Tatteralls Ireland representative Kenneth Fenton.

With only two races remaining in the series, the next race will take place at Punchestown on Sunday, 19 November (entry closing date, 14 November). 

These races are each worth €20,000 and are confined to four, five, six and seven-year-old geldings and mares that have been sold as three or four year olds in a recognised store sale in Ireland or the UK. 

Each race is confined to horses that have cost no more than €30,000 as a store and have not won any race under rules or a point-to-point.  Runners in this Tattersalls Ireland / EBF Auction Maiden Hurdle Series will also have allowances according to their sales price and age. All horses must be EBF eligible to enter these races.
