BALLYDUFF FINALS

 A first visit for me to Ballyduff...........Thankyou for the excellent directions posted onto the Ballyduff Website.  And well signposted too.....makes life easy!

 Nice field with excellent facillities ...........good food and a friendly welcome.   Great Hares too.

We were even treated to a extra race between two hares


But best of all was the chance to see that great dog Sandy Sea.............put up a faultless display in winning the Kit Browne North Kerry Cup.............Trainer Pa Fitzgerald has a bit of a stranglehold on this Cup




What a amazing dog he is...........left in slips in the semi final saw him two lengths  down with a early turn looming...............a late surge from Sandy Sea to raise the flag caused a "Clonmel" type roar from the crowd




Heres a series of pictures to show the run with the galant Ronans Man






 


ALL AGE BITCH

Tough stake this with a few current winners taking place

 Herhairwasblack..........fresh from her Stake win at Castleisland ran well to get to final but had no answer to Leigh Smokeys relentless gallop


 Leigh Smokey


Juliette O`Sullivan and Cathleen Casey OConnel
By Tynwald Smokey out of Leigh Shadow ..........I saw this lovely bitch ran a couple of times last year and she always gave a good account of herself..........as did her litter sister Lycon Betty .   It was nice to see her finally lift one
owned by Patrick O`Conor from Ballyduff  and trained by Gerald and Brian O`Sulivan, it was a great day for them





 NORTH KERRY CUP

As mention earlier was won by Sandy Sea...........This great dog is availiable at stud by frozen semen...By Murtys Gang  out of that great brood Ardnalee Laura hes bred in the purple and as tough as teak.    His partner in the final  Squatters Rights, (Bexhill Eoin x Heresay Bridie) took a right tumble in his bye run semi final

Liam Dowlings Ballymac Tory was the other finalist.  This fella also comes from a decent litter...............Trajectory  x Ballymac View...............expect to see some of this litter at Clonmel.
Views Judicial Affair litter included Call the Gaffa and Beautiful Smile


OAKS TRIAL STAKE

Hes at it again!.................Bexhill Eoin...........a sire on fire!!.........yet another winner for him

This time with Glin View Bitl owned by the PMP syndicate.............Bitl is out of Tobitl who is also the dam of Solid Mad Monk and Black is Special. This stake had its fair share of bitches knocking on the door for Clonmel tickets.
The quarter final run between Bitl and Sunny Skies was a great buckle and close call.......but she ran through the rest of the stake at her leisure

Im sorry for making a total mess up with this write up..................a flood of O`Connors training winners has left me totaly confused and with the help of some kind people I hope ive got things correct this time!!

Thankyou...........as ive said before I welcome any help or corrections in the comment sections.............its hard enough  to win a stake without me crediting others with it..............
