I must own up and admit that over the last few months I`ve been somewhat preoccupied with building up “The McGoldrick Partnership” and telling existing, new and potential members about our three horses bought to “follow in my old boys famous footsteps”
The inference there is that “my old boy” as I refer to him, is now a bit of a back number.
Well having just seen him in light work for the season ahead, a bit of a back number he most certainly is NOT!! He looks superb after his summer break, and Sue, who rides him in some of his work reports that he is “pulling her arms out” and, quote, “honestly Richard you`d think he was a 4yo. He just loves being up here”
If all goes well with his preparation for his 12th season of racing, and we are sensible in the choosing of his races, then his current win tally of 14 races might well increase.
Whatever happens Mister McGoldrick is a fantasic ambassador for National Hunt racing, and from what Sue says, there`s no way he`s ready to hang his boots up just yet.
