Brightwells graduate makes history at Ffos Las

BRIGHTWELLS had reason to celebrate on Thursday evening when Plunkett made history as thefirst horse to win at Ffos Las.

The gelding, who won the Freebet.co.uk National Hunt Novices Hurdle by seven lengths, topped the recent Ascot June Derby Sale when selling to trainer Evan Williams for £32,000.

Williams was quick to acknowledge the role of consigner Michael Hourigan in the gelding's success, saying: "Michael was adamant the horse would be successful for his new connections and was true to his word.

"I've always been a regular customer at Ascot Sales and I am delighted for Brightwells who have worked very hard to lift Ascot Sales profile. Horses like Plunkett endorse this success."

Wild card entries are now being accepted for theAscot Summer July Sale on July 14th.
