Gatsby Heads Tatts Gold Cup Entries
Classic winners The Grey Gatsby, Kingston Hill and Just The Judge feature among 28 entries for the Tattersalls Gold Cup, Ireland's first older-horse Gr1 race of the Flat season, reports racingpost.com. The Aidan O'Brien-trained Adelaide, winner of last year's Gr1 Cox Plate in Australia, is reportedly also entered for the Curragh showpiece on Sunday 24 May. Among the home contingent are Dermot Weld's outstanding prospect Free Eagle, third in last year's race, Coronation Stakes fourth My Titania and Yorkshire Oaks winner Tapestry, one of five entries for Aidan O'Brien. Paul Hensey, the Curragh's general manager, said: "We are delighted to see so many Classic and Group 1 winners among the initial entries for this world class race and we are very grateful to both owners and trainers for supporting what promises to be one of the highlights of our 2015 season."
