A 2021 Aintree Grand National racecard signed by Rachael Blackmore, yard visits with Johnny Murtagh and Henry de Bromhead, race day experiences at Leopardstown and The Curragh and luxury overnight stays at Lyrath Estate Hotel & Spa and Mount Juliet are among the lots up for auction as part of the Hurling For Cancer Research Online Auction. The auction once again replaces Jim Bolger and Davy Russell's hurling match, which is unable to be staged due to Covid-19. A full list of auction items can be found here, with bidding closing on Aug. 10 at 9 p.m.
Classic winning trainer and Hurling For Cancer Research founder Jim Bolger said, “Unfortunately everyone has been touched by cancer and it is only through the vital research work conducted by the Irish Cancer Society that we can combat this terrible disease, so I would appeal to everyone to support the online auction in any way. There are some fantastic items available for bids and the online auction site also takes donations.”
