Three runners over the Weekend

Posted on July 12, 2019

Two for Leopardstown this Evening

Posted on July 11, 2019

Just two runners this evening at Leopardstown.   6.50  BALEFIRE  (Shane Foley) Balefire has been really consistent this season and he has run well in Leopardstown in the past.  It is a surprisingly small field but at the same time it is really competitive.  Our horse is solid at this level and is taking his racing really well.  A reproduction …
Everyone seemed to enjoy The Curragh last night. The good weather definitely helped and I thought the place looked fantastic, while the track itself was in great condition.

I hope to run 7 horses …

I thought he’d run well and his work beforehand, suggested that …

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 …
