Too Hard To Hold He has really learned how to race properly,. He didn't jump as quick as he usually does but it actually worked out to be a good thing as he can be a touch keen in his races. Today he jumped, did things properly, went through the race and finished it off well, hitting the line strong. I think a strongly run six is what he wants.

Sagittarius Rising I went to school in Monaghan and did my leaving cert. I wasn’t sure about college so I went to work full-time for John. I took out an apprentice license before lockdown but had to wait a while to get going. I’ve a few options whether to keep riding or go to college next year and I’ll see how Dundalk goes in the next couple of months. Dad has a good team of horses and I’m in competition with Siobhan (Rutledge) who is riding very well.

Sagittarius Rising He deserved that and has put a few good runs together. He handles the slow ground well. Colin thought he might have the speed for six on slow ground so that’s something to think about. It’s nice to get his head in front for the year as he’s probably not a Dundalk horse. He probably gets a mile but has sharpened up his last few runs.

Too Hard To Hold He was a nice horse to get, plenty of speed, but it was just a matter of getting him to do things properly as he was a bit free in his early days,. It took us a while to settle him down and for him to go through a race properly. You'll see today that he did things right and got the result. Hopefully he can kick on from this and maybe win another little race.
