After race at Curragh Sat, 15th Sep, 2012 (1st)
It was a good performance, absolutely fabulous, you couldn't write it. I told Niall that he was in great great form. He rode him in his last bit of work and he thought he was in good form and he showed it today. This is much much better (than riding) as you are with them twenty four seven. You live with them and you mind them. We have a great team, Niall McCullagh and Ben Curtis ride out. There is also the staff and Johnny (Murtagh) rides out most of the time when he's not away riding work elsewhere. I'm very grateful to the owner (Andrew Tinkler), he has 17 in training with us. It's through Johnny (Murtagh) that I got involved with him, they are well-bred horses, bred to win Legers. It's amazing a six-year-old ex-jumps horse winning a Leger. I was beaten a short head in an Oaks (the Irish version in 1977 on Sassabunda) so this makes up for it. Ursa Major ran a good race and it's been a good day.
