Last week´s running results

After his very solid second place finish on the 3rd of November I was delighted to see Khwarizmi improve again to land his maiden at Dundalk last Friday. Ridden by Pat Smullen the gelding did well win coming out of stall 14.
Khwarizmi is the second horse we have had for his owner Mr Saeed Al Romaithi from Dubai and is now his second winner. His previous horse Alnashmy won his maiden and reached a mark in the mid 90’s in Ireland with us before transferring to Dubai where he raced successfully for a number of years.
Khwarizmi has come out of his race in top form and this notoriously lazy gelding looks like he could be an improver! He may go for a 5 furlong nursery on the 21st of December before making any future plans with him.

Also on Friday night Alfredo Arcano put up another top performance to finish second to Oneoveryou. Our three year old had to concede 18 pounds to the winner who is very useful.  I was delighted with the way he finished out the race and he looks to be an improving sprinter. He will return to the Dundalk track in seven days to contest a valuable handicap over 6 furlongs.

Dennis McGettighan’s Bonnington Lass was our only runner on Wednesday. She ran very well from the front before tiring in the closing stages of the mile contest to finish 7th. This filly is still a little weak and will be given a good break before returning to the track as a three year old. I did like the way she travelled in the race and she looks a filly that can win next year.

Exciting night tomorrow
An exciting night ahead with two runners in Ar Saoirse and Elleval. We are really looking forward to seeing Elleval  make his comeback in the mile handicap. Damian Lavelle’s gelding will have to post a very good performance if he is to secure a spot at this year’s Dubai carnival. It would be great to see him there for the 6th consecutive year. His race on Friday has a lot of strength to it but his work has been good and we are looking forward to getting him started.
Ar Saoirse runs in the 6 furlong nursery and we are hoping he can go very close. Beaten less than 2 lengths on his handicap debut in October, Ar Saoirse will hope to improve on that to land the competitive race for the well named Sheikh The Reins syndicate.


Exciting syndicate opportunity available

Just two shares left

There are only two shares left in a lovely filly that was purchased at last months Goffs Horses In Training sale. The filly called Cracking Name who cost €11,000 has had good break since the sale and we could not be happier with how she has settled in and the condition she has put on.
The lightly raced three year old won at Tipperary for her former trainer Paul Deegan in August and she looks an ideal type for some of the festivals like Killarney, Galway and Listowel next year. We will be aiming her at a few races in Dundalk in the new year first.
