I’m delighted to report that Advantage Point won his bumper in very good style at Punchestown last Wednesday. He made the running and quickened clear up the straight to win comfortably under a cool ride from Mark O’Hare. Future plans yet to be decided but hurdling looks the next route for him.
Remembered Joy ran a much more encouraging race at Leopardstown last Thursday for the Eddie Harty Racing Club. She didn’t quite get the 1m 7f but challenged for the win about 1 and a half furlongs from home to suggest she could be very competitive at a lesser distance. She looks set to run again at Leopardstown this Thursday so we look forward to seeing some of you there.
Harebell ran a nice race at Fairyhouse on Friday doing the hard work out in front. She pulled quite hard and therefore didn’t have as much left as you would have liked for the money end but thankfully she is fine after the race and we will find another nice race for her soon.
Our RACE Trainees, Sean Gorman and Anna Gorman, are graduating on Friday. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with them and both have bright futures in the industry.
