Monday, April 11, 2016

We couldn't be happier. The QIPCO Irish Champion Stakes is certainly one of the races of the year and the line-up is quite unbelievable. With Minding taking on the colts for the first time, including a dual Derby winner in Harzand and a French Derby winner in Almanzor, it is a dream come true to have them racing at Leopardstown on the opening day of Longines Irish Champions Weekend. I'm delighted to see Qemah and Persuasive coming for the Group 1 Coolmore Fastnet Rock Matron Stakes. Again that is a fascinating contest. We can't wait for Saturday.
