J P Murtagh quotes on Sankari Royale (IRE)

she has been done a couple of times but I thought the way the race would set up today it might suit her. She has been doing the donkey work the last couple of times and just getting caught. Niall (McCullagh) says she dropped in and relaxed well. She quickened up well and there were two smart fillies there (runner-up Treasuring and third placed India Rain). She is improving all the time and I think she will be able to step up to six furlongs as well. We might go for a little black type along the line.

J P Murtagh quotes on Yolo Star (IRE)

I was just a bit worried that she might not be fit enough as you can see there is not much of her in it. She's very tough, she's very hardy,. She had a little niggly problem after she won in Cork but her heart is the biggest part of her. She is a little bit up in her weight but maybe she's developing and Niall said she's a jockey's dream. She jumps, travels and she done it well. Gill Richardson picked her out ten grand at Doncaster and it was money well spent. I thought I had to chances coming here and I'm very happy to be going home with two winners. I'm very happy with the way the season is going. It's very consistent and we are not just having a bunch of winners and then stopping. There has been a constant flow from the start of the year, and it's all down to good staff and good riders. I've two apprentices, Niall is in and Shane Foley is riding a bit of work also. To have good horses you need good riders, and I have got good riders.
