Irish Defence

Wow, she’s now won half of her eight starts and last night was her first try on turf.  She’s a half to Irish War Cry and Irish Strait so she’s certainly keeping up the family name!  It was the shortest distance she’s run, at five furlongs, so she’s now won from that distance up to one mile – very versatile.  Congratulations to owner/breeder Isabelle de Tomaso.

She was too funny on Friday.  Jan was outside her stall during feed time and had her back to her.  Rather than eat her food she wanted attention and was looking over the stall door pulling faces behind her.  It was a typical photo bombing moment, wish I’d had a camera!
