After race at Dundalk Fri, 3rd May, 2019 (1st)
We probably didn't expect it but she ran fairly well when she was a bit out of the handicap in the claimer. The way it worked out she was 15lb or 20lb wrong with a couple of horses. We thought she would maybe run into a place but we didn't expect her to win like that. We were running her here just after Christmas and she didn't seem to be letting herself down on it but she had been running over a mile and four and a mile and three, and we just took a chance dropping back to a mile last week and she ran a cracker and we said we would bounce her out again. I would have been happy with fourth or fifth. It was a hot enough race - I think Noel's horse (Wild Shot) had won three in a row. To do it like that there may be more to come hopefully. She'll go the turf now - there's a race in a couple of weeks over in Ayr. We'll play it by ear and see what happens. He (Patrick McKenna) currently has three (in training), the other two run at the Curragh on Monday. It's a small operation so any win is a good win. We are in Benburb, 45 minutes down the road (from here).
