Trainer Quotes

Norman Lee quotes on Sole Pretender (IRE)

We’re delighted and he’s doing everything we’re asking of him. We have a small yard with 15 horses in at the moment and he’s by far the best we’ve ever had. He’s owned by a great man, Michael Hogan, and he trusts us with him. We will have 30 in for the winter and we are always open to getting good horses into the yard.

Seamus Fahey quotes on Beat Of The Sea (IRE)

Ryan got into a bit of bother but lucky enough she was good for him. She pinged the last even though she didn't have a lot of light at it, and she battled all the way up to the line. She wasn't winning out of turn. She disappointed us in Downpatrick the last day, possibly it was due to her first run in a handicap and maybe I went back too quick with her. She had run well around here which is a big plus, and we might come back here for something.

Trainer Quotes

Patrick J Flynn quotes on Buttons And Bows (IRE)

We are delighted with her. We thought the trip might be a bit short today but we felt she might get away with it, with the pull up to the finish here. I told the young fella to take his time and that she would stay well up the hill,. She is a lovely mare and will probably be better over further. She just got away with the ground today, if it was any firmer I wouldn't have ran her as she is a big mare. Her mother won for me and JP as well. I actually sold her to JP and then he gave me this one out of her so it's brilliant.

Trainer Quotes

Michael J Bowe quotes on Jaime Sommers (IRE)

she jumped really well out in front and gave an exhibition of jumping and the experience really stood to her. She was given 14lbs for winning at Kilbeggan last year and it put her out of hurdles; I had never any intention of going chasing with her but from the first day she schooled well over fences and I'm just relieved now that she had that as an option as she is so badly handicapped over hurdles. We'll see what the handicapper does with her now and it's great to win here; her mother won a Grade 1 here and is back in foal at 21 years of age to Vandegarde. She has two Yeats foal, a four year old with Enda Bolger and a three year old with Mags Mullins and has a Getaway colt foal this year. She (Jaime Sommers) is the only filly I have out of Solerina so is very important and is also only six and today was her 38th run today. She is consistent, minds herself and is fierce sound. I'd love to get black-type with her eventually.

Trainer Quotes

W P Mullins quotes on Listen Dear (IRE)

she is so slick over her fences - she isn’t big but has so much scope and Paul had a big grin on his face there and wanted to go around again. We’ll look for something similar if we can find a similar race but on that good ground over the summer tracks, she’ll be very hard to catch. There is no long-term plan but Galway Plate is an option - she’ll probably get an entry but could also go back over hurdles.
