After race at Leopardstown Sat, 29th Oct, 2016 (1st)
we’ll give him (Vastonea) a break for the winter now. He’s a right old horse and pays his way and has won two Topaz Miles (at Galway) and was third in another. He has won over €240,000 now and he’s a star in our place and everyone’s favourite. we’ve had a good season and while I didn’t have that many horses, they all performed well. Aneen is a very nice filly and hopefully if everything goes right she’ll make a nice three-year-old. She’ll probably start off in one of the Guineas trials and hopefully progress from there.
After race at Naas Sun, 3rd Jul, 2016 (1st)
He's been a great old servant but we thought he had gone last year. He never looked as well as he does today,.
After race at Gowran Park Wed, 8th May, 2013 (1st)
He stuck it out well but he had to have the 3Ibs (successful jockey Sam James' claim) off. The rain that fell helped him too.
After race at Leopardstown Sun, 31st Oct, 2010 (1st)
We didn't think he had done enough at home before this race but evidently he had. He is by Verglas and most of those horses prefer easy ground and win in France. He is probably a decent horse in the making.
