Former Melbourne Cup hopeful Tiger Moth is to be sold at auction after his owners, Coolmore, entered the 4 year old into the Tattersalls Autumn Horses In Training Sale, starting on October 25 in the UK

Tiger Moth to go under the hammer

Tiger Moth, who is a Galileo entire, has been entered into the auction as lot 548. 

Most punters will remember the buzz around Tiger Moth in last years Melbourne Cup, where the youngster, who was heavily fancied in betting, came flying late to narrowly miss out on victory and finish second. 

Tiger Moth was the most recent in a growing line of 3 year olds from the Northern Hemisphere attempting to win the world’s richest 3200m race. 

Trained by Aiden O’Brien, Tiger Moth was attempting to follow the footsteps of Cross Counter who won the race as a 3yo with literally no weight after having only had his 5th career start in the cup.

Since coming oh so close in the Melbourne Cup Tiger Moth has only visited the track once since where he finished last in the G1 Tattersals Gold Cup at the Curragh in Ireland.

Given the impact made by such a young and rarely raced horse it’s amazing to think that Tiger Moth goes under the hammer with just career wins to his name. The first a Group 2 win at Leopardstown and then winning a G3 event at the same track later in the same year. 

Unfortunately for Tiger Moth it seems as though the ownership group has seen enough however with the horse set to be sold on 25th October and inevitably move away from his current base with champion trainer Aiden O’Brien.
