Quotes

Quotes on Gun Merchant (GB)

He’s a nice, big, galloping horse. We’ll leave him now for his summer holidays and he’ll be a grand horse to come back in and go hurdling. My father (Pat) and a heap of his friends own him so it’s grand. I actually trained my first Irish winner for them (Barstool Prophets Syndicate) with a horse called Toran Road (at Kilbeggan in May, 2007).
