Galway Tue, 30th Jul, 2019
Saltonstall I thought we had everything covered as such behind us, it was just what was in front of us - Donnacha's horse (Numerian) was just after getting out and getting running. This lad was travelling well as he met the rising ground and he really powered up the hill. I can't believe it and it is great for the crew who have worked hard and for (owners) the Dooley brothers from Manchester and Bart O'Sullivan, who is also our yard sponsor. Today was a plan, some of these plans don't come out but this has come out and it is brilliant. Stevie (Thorne), my assistant, is brilliant at picking out these horses and picked him out at Goffs and we looked at him. He had had a few problems and had bled a few times, but he said he was a horse we could take a chance on and we always felt Galway was a fantastic place to be in, so we tried to get him up for Galway and it has happened.
