THE John Kidd-bred Longhouse Sale achieved the rare feat of winning three bumpers in three starts when landing the Kids Anniversary Standard Open National Hunt Flat Race at Market Rasen last Sunday.

All three wins have come under Harry Skelton whose brother Dan trains the four-year-old September Storm gelding for Paul and Clare Rooney. Out of the Dushyantor mare Sweetbriar Rose, Longsale Sale won his point-to-point maiden first time up at Dromahane in May when trained by Sam Curling for John Duggan and ridden by Derek O’Connor.
