Well, the Irish Derby draws to a close this weekend and unfortunately we’ll have no runners in this years showcase event. Hawaii Kinsale progressed the furthest for the kennels this year when reaching the Quarter Finals, which is a great achievement in itself. We also had a reasonable run in the Ger McKenna/Seamus Graham Memorial Plate where Runaway Rover made the Semi-Finals.

Moving onto the finals, we have a strong team heading to HQ and will be aiming to put on a good performance. The likes of Sidarian Blaze, Vans Viking, General Wolf, Cabra Buck, Hawaii Kinsale, Sidarian Lisa and Coolavanny Pandy are all entered. Sidarian Lisa goes into Saturday in fine form after winning the The Get Your Derby Final Tickets Tonight Open 750 on Saturday just gone.  Leading at the final turn she went on to win by 3.5 lengths in a good 41.72.

Friday night will see us head to Harolds Cross and Waterford. The opening round of the Puppy Derby at Harolds Cross will see Hooverville and Mill Bank Stevie represent us and both will improve for recent sighters round there. Over at Waterford we have 2 runners in the The 2014 W.T.S.C Munster Oaks Final. Rockburst Mills and Newinn Expert, who will both go in good shape and look to step up on recent efforts.
