COOLE LION WINS DUHALLOW MAIDEN
The Paul Cashman-trained COOLE LION (Presenting) showed a game attitude to land the five-year-olds and upwards maiden at Duhallow on February 24th.
The in-form Michael O’Sullivan donned the silks of Mrs Catherine Cashman and rode the five-year-old prominently, lead or disputing with Honest To Goodness, until asserting from five out. The brown gelding reacted well to pressure from his pilot to maintain a two and a half length advantage on the line, with a further five lengths back to the third horse.
By the late Presenting, Coole Lion was bred by Peter Boyd and is a half-brother to the Grade 2 performer Finawn Bawn (Robin Des Champs).
