Trainer Quotes

Dermot Anthony McLoughlin quotes on Wee Small Hours (IRE)

He's a grand little horse and he's been unlucky a few times. He seems to run well fresh and that's the key to him, we gave him a good break. It wasn't the intention to go to the front but he said he jumped the first two and he was gone. He was just keen and travelling well under him so you might as well let him go. Before he was cutting out and I thought he was a bit trip-less at one time and ran him over different trips. He stayed at it well today. He jumped well. He's a grand fun horse and hopefully the handicapper won't be too hard on him after winning a nose. We'll play it by ear and maybe up him in trip.

Matthew J Smith quotes on The Church Gate (IRE)

The distance suited him and Andrew had said to us the last day to step him up to this trip. He had decent bits of form without ever winning and deserved to win one. His owners have been very patient as he has had some niggly problems along the way.

Trainer Quotes

V C Ward quotes on Western Goose (IRE)

It’s a while since I had a winner and these days it’s brilliant (to get one). Nine is my lucky number and this is my local track. The last time I had a winner she was number nine as well,. I’ve done a lot of different things with this mare and I just train her out of the farm at home. I don’t gallop her and just use the old fashioned way of training horses. It’s worked because she bursts blood vessels. I have to thanks Mrs Lorna Fowler for permission to go down and gallop on her point-to-point track. We do things completely different with her. Where I train I’m in a cul de sac. She does a mile-and-a-half road work in the mornings and is out as much as possible. These days are great and thank god for theses races because for the likes of me to win races now it’s very competitive. She bolted up but I wouldn’t be in a hurry to run her on heavy ground. I think she could win a nice chase on nice jumping ground. Today is her day and my day as well so it’s just fantastic.
