Majestic Maid She did it well. She just took a right hold early and she took me to the front but when she got to the front she dropped and I was able to get a good breather into her coming down the hill and then she toughed it out coming up the hill. It's my third winner for Mikey (Kennedy) now, so he is really supporting me and I'm very grateful for it. I had a great year last year (point-to-pointing) and I was champion novice. I'm in college at the minute so I think I will stay amateur until I finish that. I'll reassess the situation then. She had a good run in Limerick and we thought she'd win but it was a blessing in disguise she didn't win. We'll probably give her a break now as she has been on the go a long time. She has a bright future, she is handy enough but is good and strong and very tough. Her owner Conor Murphy is a great supporter of mine and I'm delighted for him. He owned her dam as well and has a good few homebreds at home. I have 10 horses to run for the summer and have 20 for the winter. This is my first Galway winner.
