Cork Wed, 22nd May, 2019
Heliac Cork is good to us. We’re delighted with that. The fillies are just coming to themselves now. Colin said she was green as grass - she’ll come on a tonne for that. Her ears were pricked from the word go,. She had to do it the hard way because he didn’t want it to be a dawdle. He let her use her stride and he knew she’d go on the ground. It was like a piece of work to her today, and the main thing is that she got a bracket — for her breeding and everything, it’s most important. But I think she’ll improve for that and for a step up in trip. Colin said she’s get a mile and a half no problem. It opens up a lot of doors, but we’ll see what mark the handicapper gives her too. We get a thrill out of getting winners in those colours because they were our favourite colours when we were kids, and they’re lovely people to work with.
