Donacheady Gale I remember his dam (Aboo Who) winning the good hunters chase in Thurles. His dam was champion mare for a year - she was a very, very good mare,. He's a Kalanisi horse and I bought him in the Sales for small enough money. He had a drop in the Sales and just didn't look himself. I bought him off a friend of mine Will Delaney for small money. He's a gorgeous, big horse and he could be anything. He's a lovely horse. He was showing us that at home. Finny (Maguire) was mad about him and said 'John, you have a real, class horse.' He said he would be disappointed if he doesn't pick up a winners' bumper. We'll probably go for a winners' bumper next. He won well and we are delighted with him.
