Brilliant Start for Mick Channon
What a brilliant start for Mick Channon since taking over some of our horses! Ballylifen was an excellent 2nd at Wincanton on Sunday - he jumped superbly in a 2m 6f Novice hurdle but came up against a hot one of David Pipe's. Then Balbriggan was a STAR today (Monday) and was his first chase winner with one of our ex horses, first time out at Bangor with Dominic Elsworth. He was fantastic and looks very promising. In 1989 I had my 1st chase winner with at Bangor with The Grey Gunner and then Mick did it today with the grey - Balbriggan. What a coincidence!
