A working evening at Naas with four runners.

MELISANDRE lands her maiden in fine style under Colin Keane at Dundalk 30th September 2016

Picture: Melisandre winning her maiden at Dundalk.

Back racing at Naas tonight and we have declared four to run on their card, three fillies and one big gelding having his first start.
The night kicks off as usual with a two year race and this is a fillies maiden where I introduce another one by Zoffany called MOJAMBO. She is a grand timid type and if she is anything like my others by this sire then she will definitely need a trip! She is ready to start as usual and will learn plenty from this experience. I'm delighted that my string of two year olds are all coming closer to starting as we have been very patient with them thus far.

PARTYMAN is a gelded son of Choisir that has taken an age to get to this point. He was always a very heavy horse and until we gelded him was very difficult to get weight off him. I love this sire but his progeny are hard to source for the likes of me and sadly this is not going to be one of his best and I'm hoping that his performance on track will be better than it is at home!

MELISANDRE has had the good manners to have already won her maiden and we were able to take our time with her and let her mature. She's still a small slip of a thing but has the ability to win a little handicap of this nature. Whether she's 'man' enough yet is debatable but she needs to get on with it now. Evan has just literally finished his leaving cert exam and it's nice to start him off again for the summer.Any rain that falls won't help her cause.

ALWAYS DANCING is another little filly taking on the older brigade tonight and I'm sure that there's a little handicap in her over 8/10f. She's very genuine and try's hard and I'm hoping for a solid run here so that we can aim her at one in the near future. Again, any rain that falls won't help her cause tonight.

All been said it's very much a working night for us and I don't expect to have any winners and will be pleasantly surprised if we do.


I like your comments on the bottom of your blog, it gives a good idea of you thinking of you chances. Keep up the good run of form.

You never came back to me about my idea regarding Anne-Marie, John Shortt's wife. Any thoughts. Trust you're keeping well and hope to meet up again sometime in the future.
