Today marks our first runners since Frontal Assault ran on the 24th of March. A lot has happened since then but we are delighted to be able to get back in business again!
We have two runners for today’s meeting at Naas both of which will be having their first run for the yard.
First up in SARDONYX in the opening fillies maiden over 5f. All of today’s races will be very hot as all the yards scramble to make up for lost time and its great to see 15 different trainers represented by 17 horses in this race. Sardonyx’s sire Adaay has got off to a flyer in his first season as a sire with 2 winners from a small number of runners. She has been working well and this will be a good indication of where she is against the other 2yos. We have booked Gary Halpin to ride.
Our second runner of the afternoon is THAT’S MAD who runs in the Clinton Higgins Accountants Handicap over 6f where he has a reasonable mark. The fast 5f on today’s ground should suit and we’ve decided to put a 5lb claimer on board to try and help him in the form of Andrew Slattery.
We’d like to thank everyone for their hard work throughout this difficult time and all their efforts in getting racing back on the road. There are strict guidelines in place for racecourses and we thank all the people who are in place to uphold them. We would also like to wish all our runners and riders the very best of luck and for a safe return.
