Fairytale success for Boylesports Irish Grand National Ambassador Barry Geraghty
Shutthefrontdoor 20/1 for 2015 Aintree Grand National
Barry Geraghty got an excellent spin out of Shutthefrontdoor to land the Boylesports Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse on Easter Monday.
Geraghty whose local track is Fairyhouse was winning the race for the first time and it also tied in with his role as the Boylesports Irish Grand National Ambassador.
Liam Glynn, Boylesports said “Turnover has reached a point where we believe this has been our busiest IGN in memory. We equalled last year’s figure an hour before the race which is indicative of one of the most competitive renewals in Irish Grand National history.”
He added “Many congratulations to our ambassador Barry Geraghty winning his first IGN. Definitely a result for the public as the winner was substantially backed in from 12/1 and was by far our biggest payout.”
