The Willie Mullins trained Kemboy is now able to race again after Horse Racing Ireland announced it will now accept entries for the seven year old and six other horses formerly owned by the Supreme Horse Racing Club.
Th governing body agreed that the seven horses that include Aramon, Cadmium, Defy De Mee, Harrie, Hybery and Robin De Carlow, could race again under a new ownership syndicate.
This now means it is full steam ahead for Kemboy to defend his Savills Chase title at Leopardstown on December 27th as he starts his campaign off for the season with the big aim set to be the Cheltenham and Punchestown Gold Cups.
Willie Mullins had stated that the matter of his horses being able to race would be cleared up soon but to the joy of the trainer the HRI announced this morning that his horse could run again just in time for Wednesday’s entry deadline for the Grade One over three miles.
(Credit At The Races) The HRI statement read: “The new registrations have been formed under new syndicates comprising members who have come forward as shareholders in those horses.
“The new syndicates have agreed that any prize money won will be held within their Horse Racing Ireland syndicate account, and no withdrawals will be permitted until at least the end of the 2019/2020 National Hunt season.
“This will allow members time to take further steps, including finalising the shareholding in each horse.
“Horse Racing Ireland expect additional horses, formerly registered under Supreme Horse Racing Club, to be registered through a similar process in the coming days.”
