We were delighted with Ridenza winning first time out last night at Leopardstown.  We thought  plenty of her before she ran and she didn’t let us down.  I thought it was a smart performance from a filly first time out.  She looks to have a bright future. Unfortunately after the race she was discovered to be lame and had an …
It’s been a relatively quiet week, but we are back at Leopardstown tonight, with a couple of runners and then onto The Curragh tomorrow, where we run a two-year-old in the opener. In the meantime, we have to mention Surrounding, who won her third stakes race this year, when successful in the fillies listed race last week at Galway. She …
We were thrilled with Surrounding’s success at Galway yesterday.  This is her 3rd listed win to go with her Group 3 success.  She has improved throughout the season and is really on top of her game at the moment.  Owner/breeder the Newells get great enjoyment from her wins and there is nowhere better than Galway. 6.50        MISS SNOSSYBOOTS      NIALL …

We had a great double last night.  Katiymann came back from a break to win the seven furlong handicap in Fairyhouse.  Defining Battle won his first handicap in Killarney.  He appreciated the step up in trip and is an exciting prospect. We have three runners in Leopardstown this evening. 6.45  TONKINESE (Liam Browne) & GOUGANE BARRA (Ross Coakley) Tonkinese in …
We were delighted with Surrounding’s win in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Brownstown Stakes (Group 3) at Fairyhouse on July 14th.  She has been a wonderful servant and continues to improve with her racing.  She has come out of her race well and we may let her take her chance in the Group 2 Paddy Power Minstrel Stakes …
