ELLEN DOYLE, Baltimore Stable, Coolgarrow, Enniscorthy recorded their first track victory on the 19th attempt when Howyabud (25/1 from the 1940s) clocked six lengths under young Jack Foley (Bagenalstown) in the first obstacle of Savills, doing better than his previous three seconds.
he had distinguished company in his wake with Paul Townend / Willie Mullins second on Rich Ricci’s Horantzau D’airy (11/10) and Mark Walsh third on De Bromhead’s Secret She Keeps.
She only got her track license in March, but she has been successful on point-to-point terrains for several years.
She had six winners in the recent fall program and two of them made big bucks in the recent Cheltenham sale.
She and her brother James sold four horses for € 623,000, led by the second biggest in the sale, The Gunner Yeats, for £ 310,000 to Willie Mullins, and Off To A Flyer (by Shirocco) for £ 180,000 to the agents Peter and Ross. Doyle.
These two had been prepared to win their p2p young daughters to Dromahane and Lingstown a few days earlier.
We hope Doyle starts now that she has made a breakthrough on Wexford’s list of winning coaches.
