Mossback (Yeats) winning a beginners chase at Naas

Moss Back with a victory for Yeats

Gigginstown House Stud’s Mossback (5g Yeats-Sejour, by Bob Back) kicked off his chasing career with a stylish success in a Naas beginners’ chase on Saturday. A bumper and hurdles winner, the Yeats five-year-old stayed on well to win the 2m 3f beginners’ chase for trainer Gordon Elliott. “I thought he'd want further and he does want further as he was off the bridle but kept galloping. He will definitely go further,” said Elliott.

Bred by Mrs Philip Hore, Mossback was sold for €62,000 as a store at Tattersalls Ireland.
