The horses continue to run well and thankfully, we appear to have a lovely bunch of two year olds and it was great to win another Curragh maiden last Friday with Sinawann. He’s a smashing horse and it’s great to have horses like him in the yard. They are the best bunch of two year olds that I’ve trained and …

3 runners at the Curragh this evening

Posted on August 23, 2019

It is a great card at the Curragh this evening. We are represented there by 3 runners.   5.40 SINAWANN (RONAN WHELAN) Sinawann represents us in this maiden at 5.40. I was delighted with his first run at the Curragh 2 weeks ago. Despite showing signs of greenness, he ran a promising 5th. He has improved for the experience and …

We have a quiet week numerically in Galway this week. 8:00        BALEFIRE             RONAN WHELAN Our first runner of the week is Balefire in the Bet With Tote At The Galway Races Handicap.  He has been very consistent horse for us this year and goes there tonight on the back of a comfortable win at Leopardstown.  The ground and trip look …
