Irish Champions Weekend


Recommended Posts

We're in for a cracking weekend of racing over here in Ireland with the much promised battle between Golden Horn and Gleneagles set to take place. The outer course at Leopardstwon which will be used for the Boomerang Mile, Matron Stakes and Champion Stakes was good to firm, good in places this morning and we had a scorcher here in Dublin today (just over 20 degrees :lol). The weather is likely to be similar tomorrow and Thursday so we'll have very quick ground going into Friday before the rain is expected to arrive. However it's not unusual for most of the rain to fall over the west and midlands leaving Dublin relatively dry so we can all remain confident of a clash between the two classic winners.

Looking forward to getting stuck into the cards and attempting to pick some winners. Out of interest how is Irish Champions Weekend perceived in the UK? Will it come close to the hype around the St. Leger meeting at all?

Looks fantastic if all the main players turn up Good to see Cirrus des Aigles there - first run in Ireland ? As to how it's viewed over here I'd say that the Irish St Leger is of little interest and has lost any meaning since it was opened to older horses..........it'll certainly be massively overshadowed by the Doncaster race, which in itself is of little relative importance in the grand scheme of things. The other group one races look fantastic.......the Moyglare and National are viewed as the best two Irish 2yo races and given that Ireland usually wins our Guineas will probably provide the winter favourites for the 1000 and 2000 gns The Matron and Irish Champion are very dependent on who runs.......there's a lot of group one races over that trip for older horses and all the top horses can avoid each other if they want..........this year both races look terrific if the principals turn up

..........and inevitably one of them is a non runner Gleneagles out
Amazing the Curragh got less than 10mm but Leopardstown got 27mm. Very unlucky. Gleneagles ran on that sort of ground in the Irish Guineas. The difference then was that Coolmore knew they would beat Ivawood and an average bunch of colts that day. They knew today would be a very tough ask and decided not to run and protect his unbeaten record as a 3 yo. Now Aidan can continue spoofing on about how he just does enough, has a ton of improvement left in him and is the best miler he's trained. All I see him as is the best of a poor bunch of 3 yo milers who wasn't good enough to compete with the best. Let's hope he goes to the BC Classic and changes that.

The thing is though that next year there'll be another top miler and the year after that there'll be another one, Gleneagles will fade down the pecking order just in the natural course of things whereby this year's 'best horse ever' overshadows last year's 'best horse ever' and so on..........Gleneagles is in danger of just being remembered as 'the non runner'

Weekend action overshadowed somewhat by the fatal injury to the popular stayer, Brown Panther, in the Irish St Leger Very much a public horse because his connections.......bred and owned by former England footballer Michael Owen Michael was passionate about this horse above all others......I imagine he'll be devastated......
