What a trooper! Irish Strait was sent to the front by Feargal Lynch in his usual front running manner, everyone sat pretty thinking they could pick him off at any time but he is so tough and game; he looks for a moment like he’s going to be one-paced and then he finds that extra gear. Today he won by about four lengths with Can’thelpbelieving, our other runner chasing him is his wake. This was an excellent run for him too as it’s the shortest distance he’s run for a while over the one mile and one sixteenth, but he made it count. Congratulations to Isabelle de Tomaso, owner and breeder of Irish Strait, Irish War Cry’s brother.
