KRB have had a busy few weeks at the store sales in Goffs, Tattersalls Ire and Arqana, where they managed to buy some lovely horses for their clients.
On the racing front, the promising two year old I’ll Have Another won on the last day of June for Paul and Clare Rooney and trainer Mark Johnston. I’ll Have Another was winning under a penalty at Doncaster and she looks to have a very bright future. She was bought by KRB as a yearling from the late Frank Barry’s Manister House Stud in Limerick.
Today at Limerick One In All In won the novice hurdle for Henry de Bromhead in the colours of Chris Jones, and given a confident ride from Davy Russell. He will now be targeted at the Galway festival.
Another horse that could be going to Galway could be Castlehume who returned after a long absence to win the two mile handicap hurdle at Bellewstown on Friday night. Trained by Noel Meade for the Castlehume syndicate who are longtime clients of KRB he was bought for them as a store.
KRB purchases continue there winning ways recently. Count Simon bought from Andrew Balding’s at the Horses in Training sale in Newmarket in the Autumn won the novice hurdle at Downpatrick, staying on strongly under Davy Russell. He is sure to win plenty of races for Joe and Pat Sloan and trainer Gordon Elliott.
Final Reminder won her third race in a row winning the mares handicap hurdle at Aintree for Nick Alexander and owner Brian Castle. Ridden by Lucy Alexander she stayed on strongly to get up close home.
I’m Always Trying won the handicap hurdle at Fontwell by nine lengths for Paul and Clare Rooney, ridden by Harry Skelton for his brother Dan. I’m Always Trying was bought by KRB as a store in Goffs Landrover Sale and looks like a horse on the upgrade.
KRB will be at the Derby sale next week where they hope to find some nice stores for their clients.
KRB have been busy at the sales recently, Goresbridge Breeze Up, Goffs UK and Goffs In Ireland this week at the Land Rover sale, where they managed to buy fourteen stores for different clients.
Recent KRB purchases to win are Rio Lobo, who won the maiden hurdle at Tramore for local trainer Henry de Bromhead and owner Chris Jones. He was bought as a store by KRB and hopefully the son of Milan can go onto better things. Roo Roo was also bought as a store and won on his first start over hurdles at Perth for Paul and Clare Rooney and trainer Ian Jardine.
The Rooneys were also successful on the flat yesterday where they won the two year old maiden at Chelmsford with the lovely filly, I’ll Have Another. She is trained by Mark Johnston and was purchased by KRB at Goffs UK as a yearling.
