22 January 2018
Yesterday Gordon Elliott and Gigginstown House Stud celebrated again, this time at Thurles. They claimed the first race of the day when Jack Kennedy rode Pete So High to a five-length victory in the www.thurlesraces.ie Maiden Hurdle. Half-an-hour later they were back in the winner's enclosure with sixteen-length winner, Dortmund Park, in the W.T. O'Grady Memorial Irish EBF Novice Hurdle. They took a break for an hour and scored again when Jack Kennedy partnered A Toi Phil, who won the Horse & Jockey Hotel Kinloch Brae Chase by nine-and-a-half lengths. Then Dinaria Des Obeaux completed the four-timer in the Coolmore National Hunt Sires Irish EBF Mares Novice Chase. The five-year-old had struggled a bit in a couple of Grade Ones but this Grade Two was much more to her liking as she was back competing against her own sex. A few anxious moments when this Saddler Maker filly wasn't so fluent over the last fence but Jack Kennedy, completing a treble on the day, got her focussed again and the couple passed the line eight lengths to the good.
Got the wind up and won!
An unusual record was established at Taunton when the Warren Greatrex-trained Boite scored in the Bathwick Tyres Seniors' Handicap Hurdle. The recent British Horseracing Authority regulation that trainers must declare any horse that has undergone certain wind surgeries came into force on Friday. Four runners were listed as such in yesterday's fixtures but the unusual record was claimed by the Authorized gelding who had not only had the operation but won his race.
Honey gets the money
Willie Mullins only had one winner at Navan but the race was well and truly his as he saddled a 1-2-3 in the Race Displays Event Signage Beginners Chase. Bonbon Au Miel, ridden by the trainer's nephew, David Mullins, led the trio home in this two-and-a-half-mile contest in testy conditions. This Khalkevi gelding made most of the running and seemed not unduly exerted when easily sprinting away approaching the last to win by eleven lengths. Stable companions, Turcagua and and Cadmium followed him home.
