Six for Gowran Park on Sunday

Posted on June 14, 2019

Gowran Park, Sunday 1.35 Zarzyni (Ronan Whelan) He is our second two-year-old runner of the year. He’s a nice horse by Siyouni and it’s a nice place to start him off. It’s a small field as well, so all in all, it should be a good experience for him. He will appreciate going seven furlongs and he will improve for …
It’s a busy few days for us, with runners at Fairyhouse and Cork tonight. We run two at Limerick on Saturday and six at Gowran on Sunday. We’ll have a separate post later today on our Sunday runners.

Four For Sligo This Evening

Posted on May 21, 2019

We had a great day on Sunday when our only runner Surrounding won The Owenstown Stud Stakes (Listed).  She is now rated 101 which is a career high for her, not too bad for a six-year-old.  There should be plenty more fun to be had with her for the rest of the year. We have four runners in Sligo tonight, …
