Eilise's A Lady She has a savage pedigree as she's out of a full-sister to Our Vic. The owners (Martins To Booleigh Syndicate) would have loved to been here today but that's the way it is and it's great to have a winner. We're back racing, that's the main thing, and please God the virus stays away and we get better and stronger. Mary Lett, who had He'llberembered with me, has a share in him along with a Dublin lad and a few locals. Kilbeggan is a great track, it's fairly local to us and we've had a lot of luck here. Aaron had his first few rides here so got to know the track and likes it. It's a very proud moment when you get your son to ride a winner. He's up there grafting in the morning before he goes to Jessie (Harrington's). He hasn't been getting any outside rides. He hasn't given horses bad rides, it's just the fact that we haven't had the quality of horses in the last few years. The last winner I had was the festival in Galway (Oakly, in 2017). I had to go on Google maps to find the number one spot!

Zero Ten we were a bit unlucky the last day when he tipped up with a novicey fall and the tables have turned today as we had a bit of luck. It's great, he jumped around and put it back together again. Fingers crossed now we can keep it going and he could have a nice finish off to the back of the season as a novice. He jumped straight and to be fair the last day it was probably his best round of jumping up to the fall. He learned from the fall and especially today when he went to the last, he had a good head of steam down to it and he was able to sit up and pop. He's learning and so are we. It's a big monkey off David's back to come back here and do that in a big race today, a Grade 3 race especially at Thurles with the Molonys. It's a great race to win with the Mullins' being so close to the Molonys over the years. It's a proud moment to win that race.
