COLMAN SWEENEY TAKES FOXHUNTERS HOME
Many congratulations on a fantastically patient ride by Colman Sweeney today when he came literally from last to first to take the Christie’s Foxhunter Chase in fine style on SALSIFY owned by his mother and trained by his father.
The partnership were content to lie 20 lengths off the pace in the early stages and waited well into the home straight before Colman even thought about delivering his challenge.
After the race Colman said “I’ll take any ban they want to give me! I was 13 stone 10 lbs in December but the family and the wife put some huge pressure on me to lose it so that I could ride this fella and I’m glad I did – this is such a sweet win.”
