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.

Reach Up He’s a grand horse, and his ultimate aim is to go for the race in Listowel (Kerry Group Handicap Chase) that Kylecrue won three times. We’ll find something in Galway and we’ll consider anywhere there is a nice handicap chase.
