RATHDOWNEY

THE CUP
The Final was a battle between Dale Indecisive and Atlantic Boss, with Dale Indecisive taking the turn by a length.............both dogs had been in fine form all day

The Final

Im sure the Farrellys  are very proud of this lad as hes Dale bred through and through.............being by Dale Blue Boy out of  Two To Wonder,  owned by Orlaith Farrelly and  Michael Peart..........he won a TS last year at Old Killcullen.




Runner up Atlantic Boss has been in good form this year winning the Cup at Fermoy..........trained by Pat Lee and owned by John Lester. By Janey Mac Aroo x  Atlantic Sky
 


ALL AGE BITCHES

I really enjoyed this stake. Its great to see Trial Stake winning pup come out and run well against older dogs .
The runner up certainly did this


Why Tanyard Nina

This lady showed her liking for the hill against the older bitches but four runs in one day was a step to far and the tough Doctor Morrissey caught her near the top of the field.  Nina is by Ashmore View x Why Tanyard Jane.........a Grace Burton winner
The Final
Richard Condon with Nina

The day however belonged to Doctor Morrissey..............she ran the  hill to perfection and could be a big player at Clonmel.........lets hope we get to see her there.  This is her second Stake..........she won at Kilsheelan.  Owened by Bryan Walsh shes by Court House out of Princess Grace...........and won a Trial Stake last year at Knockgraffon






DERBY TRIAL STAKE

Its been a good week for the Donovan Kennel picking up two Derby Trial stakes in 3 days!.....Even more so because Thomas is having his first year as trainer.......im told theres a couple of nice dogs to come out......youve been warned!
