Nordic Passage I was itching to get back and it is great to get the win and I'm looking forward to the new season. credit to David Spratt from Gaelic Bloodstock and Phil Byrnes, they bought this horse and told me to be very patient with him. He looked to be a very nice young horse but just fell away with Mr Gosden. They snapped him up relatively cheap (11,000gns last May). It took him a while to learn how to get back racing and doing things right. We tried a hood on him the last day and it seemed to work as well as the tongue-tie. He needed a ride like that to get his confidence back and Donagh was absolutely excellent on him. Hopefully now we can plan a program with him and hopefully there is plenty of winning left in him. He could be an improving horse.
