KER Partner Client Wins at BallinrobeBy Kentucky Equine Research Staff · June 16, 2015

Thoroughbred trainer Gordon Elliott saddled betting favorite Eshtiaal to a win in the Audi Ballina Handicap Hurdle held at Ballinrobe Racecourse in Ireland. The horse took the lead before the last hurdle and won by nine and a half lengths. Elliott said, “He deserved that, and won well.”

In the Sheridan Electric Hurdle, two other Elliott-trained horses, Hostile Fire and Vercingetorix, were beaten by a head to finish second and third after dominating the race in its earlier stages. The victor, Esta Quercus, overtook the leaders late in the stretch following the last hurdle.

Elliott chooses feeds produced by Bluegrass Horse Feeds, a Team Member of Kentucky Equine Research, to fuel the efforts of the horses in his racing stable.
