O'Brien Looking for Irish Classic Grand Slam

The Irish Field St Leger tops the bill on the first afternoon of the Curragh’s Autumn Festival of Racing this weekend, and the Group 1 Classic has attracted 19 entries including last year’s winner Yeats. 

His trainer Aidan O’Brien has also entered six others including Septimus, Honolulu and Mikhail Fokine, as he bids to become the first trainer since 1935 to land all five Irish Classic races in the same year.

Other notable entries include Ask, Mores Wells, Papal Bull, Sixties Icon, Profound Beauty and recent US Grade One winner Winchester.
