The Lir Jet having his first start since he was moved stateside to new trainer Brendan Walsh was given a superb ride by Tyler Gaffalione who never left the inside rail to forge clear in the closing stages and win by 1 and 3/4 lengths.
Member quote of the day!
"RacehorseClub is a great way to get involved with top racehorses inexpensively. As a member of The Lir Jet club, I won the owners' ticket ballot to watch him race at Haydock. It was a fantastic experience which I won't forget, with great hospitality from RacehorseClub. I got to go into the paddock, met Oisin Murphy and other members. A terrific day out"
"Just a quick message to say, thank you ... for the greatest day of my life, I am 62 years old and all my life I've wanted to be involved with a Grand National horse. To get the chance was amazing, and coming second was something I never even dreamed of ..."
