Paisley Park is Grade 1 winner No.3 from Goffs Land Rover Sale at Cheltenham

Following in the footsteps of Altior and Topofthegame yesterday, PAISLEY PARK became the third Grade 1 winner from the Goffs Land Rover Sale at the Cheltenham Festival this week when recording a fairy tale win in the Sun Racing Stayers Hurdle for owner Andrew Gemmell, trainer Emma Lavelle and jockey Aidan Coleman. 

Paisley Park was bought at the 2015 Land Rover Sale by Gerry Hogan Bloodstock for €60,000 where he was consigned by Ballincurrig House Stud.  

It was the culmination of a superb unbeaten season for the seven year old Oscar gelding who also landed the Grade 2 Cleeve Hurdle at Cheltenham last time out following a win in Ascot’s Grade 1 Long Walk Hurdle in December.  

Paisley Park headed a 1-2-3 for Goffs store horses in the Stayers Hurdle, with Doncaster Spring Store purchase Sam Spinner putting in a great run in second and the legendary Faugheen, a Land Rover graduate, in third.
