Mister McGoldrick – His Big Day!

From August 2000 until December 2011, during his 91 race career, Mister McGoldrick became one of the most popular horses of his time. The public ever increasingly warmed to his style of racing, winning well, yet never going down without a fight in defeat. Then finally, after many near misses, in March 2008, aged eleven and at the twilight stage of his career, he had his well deserved day of glory, by winning the Byrne Group Plate at the Cheltenham NH Racing Festival, the worlds most prestigious National Hunt racing event.

Subsequent races at Hexham and again at Wetherby 18th Nov and 5th Dec  over 2mls and 3mls respectively, were disappointing.
