Global Pass I'm delighted for John Twomey and his wife Maura, from Newtownshandrum in Cork, as they are as kind owners as ever had a racehorse. The horse had such a bad year performance-wise last year, I made an agreement with John to keep him as a lead horse and if he showed anything we'd try him for John again on the track. He is a lovely horse to have around the yard and thankfully John has stuck with him. He was relatively inexpensive (5,000gns in 2018) and while it was hard to see where we would go with him last year, John was keen to give him every chance and I'm very grateful. Ronan (Whelan) was very ballsy on him and is riding brilliantly. We'll look for another race in two or three weeks and we can now pick his races as he won't be liable for ballot next time.
