Yesterday was a great day. Not only did we take home two wins in the pouring rain at Perth, we also took home the Galway Plate for the third time in four years. It was a big team effort and it’s great to reap the rewards on the track. We wouldn’t be able to do it without our top team here at Cullentra House Stables.
Back to normality, we have 5 runners today, all at Galway as we hunt for more glory.
First up is FROM EDEN in the Guinness Beginners Steeple Chase over 2m 6f. He’s been 2nd on his last three starts and we hope he change that trend for the better. Davy Russell ride.
Next is MAKE MY HEART FLY who is bottom weight in the Guinness Open Gate Brewery Novice Steeple Chase. She was 2nd on her chase debut last time out in Tipperary and comes up against a few seasoned rivals here. Denis O’Regan takes the ride.
A break to the feature race of the day, the Guinness Novice Hurdle over 2m 4f. It would be great to double up in the two major races, however we’ll be up against it here. we have two runners here as our reserve Star Maker didn’t get in. First is CHOSEN MATE who nearly broke his flat maiden tag last time out. He was a Grade 2 winning Novice hurdler last season so has a bit of class about him. Davy Russell will be riding. Our second runner in this race is TOMBSTONE who be partnered by Rachael Blackmore.
We wish all our horses and rider the very best of luck and for a safe return.
