Silk Cravat He keeps a bit for himself and the quicker they go the better. Six furlongs is ideal for him when they go quick as he can travel into it. When he gets to the front he waits for the others. He can go from six furlongs to a mile but they just don’t go quick enough for him over a mile. He’ll run all over the winter. The handicapper can’t be too hard on him, and when he tells us he’s fresh again we’ll keep him going. David Spratt set up Gaelic Thoroughbreds and there is a syndicate with three two-year-olds and three older horses. Joe Bracken and Joe Horan both from Clane are here today and they are involved in the syndicate. They are getting great sport out of it and they used to own Joe Eile. This year they have bought three new yearlings to go to war with and a couple of older horses as well. It’s an initiative that has really progressed this year and the yearlings we bought are quite expensive.
