Current 2022 Champion Bumper favourite Classic Getaway makes his racecourse debut under rules for Willie Mullins at Tipperary on Tuesday afternoon.
The five-year-old sold for £570,000 to Cheveley Park Stud at Yorton Farm during the Goffs UK December P2P Sale back in December.
That was after an easy win on his sole start between the flags at Borris House a month prior.
He now heads to Munster later today to strut his stuff for his Closutton handler as the journey towards a similar sight at Prestbury Park begins.
The Newmarket-based ownership have won the last three renewals of the Wednesday Festival curtain closer, two of which were trained by Mullins.
Ferny Hollow, Sir Gerhard and Envoi Allen all enjoyed success in the familiar blue, red and white strip in Gloucestershire, with today’s Tippeary hotpot bidding to provide his purchasers with a staggering fourth taste of glory.
Classic Getaway’s former trainer Donnchadh Doyle told the Racing Post before his big-money purchase: “He’s a very nice horse, a very good-looking horse too, and he won very well.”
“His work at home had been very exciting so I was just hoping he’d go and do what we thought he could do and thankfully he did.
“He jumped awesome and travelled lovely and he looks very exciting for the future. Whoever gets him will be very lucky.”
