The Irish National Stud in conjunction with RTE Radio1’s The Mooney Show asked you to help us name our filly foal by Rock of Gibraltar out of our mare Raise Your Spirits who was born on the 24th February 2013.
The response was amazing with entries coming in from all over the world, giving people an excuse to come visit Ireland. But there could only be one winner and that was John Masterson from Dublin 8 with his entry HELEN OF TROIKA.
All entries were e-mailed to email@example.com before being submitted to Horse Racing Ireland and Weatherbys for approval.
John has won this fantastic prize;
A VIP Tour of Mr Dermot Weld’s yard.
Private tour of the Irish National Stud & Gardens where he will meet HELEN OF TROIKA
Bed, breakfast & dinner at the four star luxury Killashee House Hotel. (Dinner in Jacks Bar & Bistro).
VIP package to day one of the Guineas Spring Racing Festival at the The Curragh Racecourse on Saturday 25th May to include premier admission tickets for 2 people and lunch in their exclusive Champagne & Wine Bar.
The Irish National Stud & Gardens are open seven days a week so make sure to visit our new celebrity HELEN OF TROIKA. We have high hopes for her future and will keep you posted on her progress!
