Flynn has worked for winning trainer Jim Bolger for many years and he'd just watched the Godolphin-owned Saffarr win on his eleventh start in the Dundalk Business Club 2017 Maiden.

She’s so dependable and so honest and always runs her race. We might have been a bit lucky as we had her in at Gowran but she came in season, and if she went to Gowran she probably wouldn’t have been here. It worked out well for her,.
After race at Dundalk Fri, 26th Oct, 2018 (1st)
She loves it around here and comes into her own at this time of year,. It was a good performance, everything went well, they went a nice even gallop. Shane knows her well, she's very game and picked up and galloped out strong. That's brilliant and it's terrific for the Newells who are great supporters of ours. They keep them in training and good and bad days they take them the same. They're wonderful people and they thoroughly deserve it. We'll keep going with her and see where we go from here. We'll enjoy tonight anyway.
After race at Fairyhouse Fri, 15th Jun, 2018 (1st)
it was a lovely race for her taking on fillies only and obviously when there is an odds-on shot you are never confident, but it was an ideal opportunity to drop her in. We had a tongue tie on her for the first time. I’m not sure if it made any difference to her but we felt that she might benefit from it. She hit the line well, and it was nice that they went a good even pace. The owners are local and are great supporters of ours and they get a great kick out of it. If we could get her some black type that would be the ultimate aim for her.
After race at Curragh Sun, 16th Jul, 2017 (1st)
I'm delighted. She got struck into behind at Limerick and we lost a lot of time with her. She's a big genuine filly,. They went very steady and that probably helped her with her fitness. Shane was probably in the right place and gave her a nice ride. She's a lightly raced filly and saves her best for the track. She's very game and we'll probably run her in another handicap. Hopefully she keeps improving. Eventually we'll take a chance one day in a Listed race as the owners have all the family. They are terrific owners. They are so patient and never put me under any pressure.

She's very green especially for one of ours and she's quite an active filly at home so we wouldn't be galloping her that much. She'll learn at the track as she goes along. That's a lovely stepping stone from Dundalk. Hopefully she'll progress into a nice little handicapper throughout the season. She did well and he (Shane Foley) had to sit and suffer and wait for gaps to open. She came on nicely from her first run and is a lovely big filly. She took plenty of time and we're lucky to have such patient owners - they gave us the time with her and their patience has paid off. She's a half-sister to Rummaging, who was a good servant for us and hopefully she'll do the same - we'll see what rating she receives now and go handicapping.
