Ballyconneely Bay Breaks Maiden Tag
Ballyconneely Bay backed up an excellent recent effort at Ascot where he finished second with another good performance at Pontefract on Thursday. Like he had at the Berkshire venue Ballyconneely Bay showed plenty of speed and enthusiasm to race up with the pace throughout. The race itself was fairly routine. Ballyconneely Bay travelled in second place and when Jason Hart asked him to go about his business and win the race he knuckled down and galloped strongly to the line to win by two lengths.
I think there is more to come from this lightly raced son of Fast Company (a favourite stallion of ours) both later this season and next year as a three year old. He is scopey and possesses an excellent attitude.
