Before he came back to me, Paul Moloney (who cheered the winner home on the infield) spent his time training him on the beach and my own young fella Timmy and my wife still head off with him to Beale beach (north Kerry) two or three times a week. Paul is stone mad for racing and trained until five years ago but like most fellows training nowadays he couldn't make the books balance. He is now driving a lorry but his heart is in racing and we also gave him another horse to bring on - his heart and soul is inside in it. Darragh O'Keeffe said that when he wasn't able to go on, he loved being able to take his time and was able to get a feel for him and he loved that ground. He is after dropping down the grades and while every day I'm talking about retiring him, he'll keep going. Michael Winters, trainer
The Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board Veterinary Officer examined Espion Du Chenet (FR), trained by Louise G. Lyons, at the request of the Stewards and reported the animal to be post race normal
The Stewards enquired into an incident in the closing stages involving Damut, ridden by D.J. O'Keeffe, placed first, Kilkeaskins First, ridden by J.P. O'Sullivan, placed fourth, Carnet De Stage, ridden by P.T. Enright, placed second and American Image, ridden by Miss A. O'Sullivan, placed third, where it appeared that Carnet De Stage had to check off heels. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards found J. P. O'Sullivan in breach of Rule 214, in that he had ridden carelessly and having considered J. P. O'Sullivans clean record in this regard the Stewards severely cautioned him on this occasion.
