Racheal Blackmore’s busy schedule continues at Limerick today with five rides. We get her views on them as well as her winner yesterday at Ballinrobe.
Winner at Ballinrobe
I was delighted to have a winner on Kilganer Queen for Tom Cleary yesterday at Ballinrobe. It was my first ride for him. He had the mare in great shape and it wouldn’t surprise me if she was able to win again for him.

The first ride today is Automatic in the first division of the two mile maiden hurdle. He was second to Linger on his penultimate run, back in October, who was well handicapped. Liam Burke’s horses seem to be going well and if he can reproduce something like that Corn run, he should be bang there.
Say It Aint So
Next up for me is Say It Aint So for Henry. He is a really nice horse who should have improved a bit for his first run where he finished fourth here last month. I think he could run a big race and shouldn’t be too far away.
I then take the ride on an old favourite of mine in the two mile four handicap hurdle. Having won six times on Supreme Vinney, he has been some horse to me at the start of my career. I had my first flat win on him and my first graded win. Trainer Denise O’Shea does a great job with him and it will be a pleasure to get back on a horse who really was a big help to me in the early days.
My final ride of the night is Fest Deiz in the three mile maiden hurdle for Kieran Purcell. He won his bumper on debut before running well on two further starts since. This is his first run over hurdles and he looks to have a good future. I am looking forward to the ride and hope he can go well here.
