Trainer Quotes

Liam P Cusack quotes on Snugsborough Benny (IRE)

He came to me last autumn having run in five point to points and fifth was as close as he got. On his first run for me, he was beaten just half a length and then won his next run by ten lengths,. I'd say the ground was just a bit quick for him the last day and it went soft out there today and we weren't sure how he'd handle it but the race cut up when a few came out. You're never unhappy when they come out and I was quite hopeful!. It's great to win another race for the owner/breeder (Ray Loughnane); this is a very competitive country and any time you have a winner, I tell you it's great. We'll look for something similar next and down the line he is more of a chaser.

Niall Madden quotes on Whatever It Takes (IRE)

That was great. Things didn't go to plan for him in Bellewstown where the ground was a bit slow,. He won around here before and we rode him handier today. He stays well. Donal gave him a great ride. He rode a winner for me about a couple of months ago on Tay Lane. He's a nice fella and rides a bit of work for me so it's nice to give him a ride. It's always great to train a winner for that man as without him a lot of us would be out of business.

Trainer Quotes

S J Mahon quotes on Freedom Statue (IRE)

Paul was sweet on her. She was fourth here twice before, and in Galway the ground went on her and Paul just looked after her,. You could say it was a bit of surprise as it was competitive looking maiden and she is a handicapper. Ballinrobe is local to me so we just said we'd run her as it was the last meeting of the year and I expected a nice run, but it's a bit of surprise to see her win twelve lengths. She jumps really well and Paul said they went a nice even gallop all the way. She will probably go back to Ballybrit next month for a handicap. Every day you have a winner is a good day and the horses are running well.

Trainer Quotes

Peter Croke quotes on My Betty (IRE)

this is my first winner in Ireland and Tony McCoy won on her in England. I just want to say a big thanks to her owner Maurice Sheehy who is a good supporter of mine. I have three or four for the track and a few point-to-pointers for next year. She (My Betty) was always entitled to win a beginners, she had been knocking on the door against good horses, and she deserved that today. She will probably have a little break now for a couple of weeks. We will see how she is then and go back to the drawing board with her.

Ben gave him a great ride and he's ridden out his claim now,. He's a home-bred and is called after our local village. We'll find another handicap for him somewhere over Christmas. He a horse that can jump a fence and could go to Downpatrick in the spring. He's a fine big horse.
