It’s a busy, and exciting, weekend for the kennel coming up with runners at three tracks, including jumping on a ferry over to the UK!
We have 3 runners at Swindon contesting the first round of the Calne Racing Arc. Proud Graham, Garryvoe Bobby and Riverside Oscar will all take the trip across the water on Saturday and hope to progress in what is a very competitive renewal of the Category 1 competition.
Limerick hosts the opening round of the Con & Annie Kirby Memorial Stake. This stake continually throws up champion juveniles and this year will be no exception looking at the line up. We send 8 youngsters to contest this exciting stake. Heat 2 will see the in form Rackethall Jess line up alongside Clonbrien Hero, both were impressive winners and will need to repeat those runs to progress in this tough heat. Lughill Robbie looks to follow up last weeks solid victory in Heat 5. Making his racing debut in Heat 7 is Sidarian Victor, he’ll improve no end for racing experience. Heat 10 will see another double header for the kennel where Drive On Tipp is drawn in with Nitro Notorious, whilst Heat 11 is the same story with Hovex Mick and Black Farren pitted in together. First rounds of the major competitions can throw up some shocks so the target on the night is safe qualification and progression to Round 2.
Finally, we’ll head to Cork with 4 runners on the van. Riverside Chip goes in an A1. Sidarian Pearl lines up in a high quality Bitches Open 525. The Open 550 will see Ballinakil Clare line up before Slippery Louise goes in the final race of the night, an Open 525.
