Reserve Tank Makes It Another Grade 1 Punchestown Festival for Goffs Land Rover

 

Punchestown proved to be another Grade 1 festival for Goffs Land Rover Sale, following on from the top level successes seen at both Cheltenham and Aintree this year.  The graduates were headed by Reserve Tank who became a dual Grade 1 winner when landing the Champion Novice Hurdle for trainer Colin Tizzard and owners The Reserve Tankers.  Winner of the Grade 1 Mersey Novices Hurdle at Aintree last month, Reserve Tank was sold by Ballincurrig House Stud to Peter and Ross Doyle at the Land Rover Sale 2017 for €35,000.
