Racing, sports and entertainment packages lead auction items
Would your rugby club like a kicking master class with Ronan O’Gara? Would you and your friends fancy a day’s racing and lunch in the Gigginstown House Stud box at Cheltenham on Gold Cup day? Or how about making in-roads into that bucket list with VIP racing trips to the Dubai World Cup, Royal Ascot and Hong Kong, or see Liverpool take on Manchester United at Anfield?
These are among the amazing auction items kindly donated by the sporting and racing world for Pat Smullen’s online auction in aid of Cancer Trials Ireland, one element of the fundraising activities happening over Longines Irish Champions Weekend.
There is also a unique illustration of Pat Smullen and the nine champion jockeys taking part in Pat Smullen’s Champions Race at the Curragh on September 15 by racing cartoonist Birdie, a lifetime use of a plain set of light blue racing silks, and yard visits to legendary trainers Aidan O’Brien and Willie Mullins.
Others have answered the call with signed jerseys, football and hurling final 2020 tickets, racecourse walks with Oisin Murphy and Davy Russell, golf memorabilia and free Irish racing for a year for two people.
