Celtic Tiger Wins Listed Morphettville Guineas

Monday, 14th September 2015

At Morphettville in Adelaide, Waikato Stud's deceased Champion stallion O'Reilly (Last Tycoon-Courtza, by Pompeii Court) added a black-type success when 3YO colt Celtic Tiger (O'Reilly-Miraculous Miss, by Exceed and Excel) scored by 0.1-length for trainer Mick Price in the $100,000 Listed Morphettville Guineas (1600m) for 3YOs, over fellow 3YO colt Ayers Rock (Nicconi-Vintage Rock, by Thunder Gulch) & 3YO gelding One For One (Duke of Marmalade-Stolen Girlfriend, by Canny Lad). This was the first stakes victory for Celtic Tiger who took his record to 1 win and 1 placing from 3 starts for $71,390 earnings. Celtic Tiger was a NZ$160,000 purchase by Mick Price Racing at the 2014 NZ Bloodstock Premier Yearling Sale from the draft of Curraghmore Stud.
