SON OF YOUMZAIN DEFIES THE ODDS AT BORRIS
SAYS THE BOY (Youmzain) beat experienced rivals to win the Winner Of Two contest at Borris House on March 3rd.
The sole maiden in the field, the five-year-old was ridden to chase the leaders by T Hamilton and took over proceedings approaching the straight. Staying on well from the final fence, he strode home to beat the joint-favourite Ted by three and a half lengths.
Trained by Shark Hanlon for Rachel O’Neill, Says The Boy was bred by Lara Kovenko out of a half-sister to two Listed hurdlers. Grade 1 performer Ennemi D’Etat and multiple Graded winner Goudenko feature further down the page.
