Get In The Queue And All Rooney Runners To Miss The Cheltenham Festival Races

According to trainer Harry Fry, Get In The Queue, owned by Paul and Clare Rooney, will pass up his entry for the Cheltenham Festival Races in favour of the Goffs UK Spring Sale Bumper at Newbury on March 23. With The Last Samuri going on retirement, the Rooneys will now have no representative for the Festival.

Last 2017, the high-profile owners enjoyed huge success with Willoughby Court in the then Neptune Investment Novices’ Hurdle. But when December came, they wrote to their trainers, informing them that they refuse to let their horses participate in the Cheltenham Festival. This is because of their worries that the track leads to an increased risk of injury.

But last month, the Rooneys decided to reverse their decision and lift the ban on their runners on joining the Cheltenham Racing Festival. In a statement, they expressed that they are pleased with what Cheltenham and Simon Claisse, the clerk of the course, have been doing to address their concerns.

Sky Bet Handicap Chase victor Go Conquer, one of their runners, could be entered to the Randox Health Grand National next month, where he has a 40-1 chance. He was originally entered in the Ultima on the first day of the festival.
