Before arriving at Oakwood Stables, Onenightintown raced out of the yard of Brian Francis Cawley, in Craughwee, County Galway.He made his debut in February 2019 in a point to point at Belharbour, but failed to complete, and it was a similar story at Loughrea in May.He made his hurdles debut at Roscommon in July, completing for the first time, but tailing off. At Ballinrobe in August he finished fifth of the nine runners beaten 42 lengths, before his final start of the season in September at Kilbeggan, beating one home, when finishing seventh, this time beaten 35 lengths.
Onenightintown returned in July of this year making his chase debut at Tipperary, when never getting competitive. His next appearance came 11 days later at Galway when thrown in at the deep end, when asked to contest the Grade 3 'Rockshore' novice chase, where he tailed off, but completed to be last of the six finishers.In September at Tramore, he was never competitive in a beginners chase, but did receive his first handicap mark of 87 (Ireland.) He made his handicap chase debut at Clonmel on October 1st,but dropped away after a slow jump at the fifth, to finish 10th of the 11, beaten a total of 66 lengths.
