FORGE MEADOW SHINES AT PUNCHESTOWN
20 November 2017
MEADOW (IRE) put on a professional display at Punchestown on Saturday when she
took the Listed Grabel Mares Hurdle. Her jumping
was slick in the main and she galloped all the way to the line for a clear-cut
success of seven and a half lengths under jockey Robbie Power. Having
previously won at Grade 2 level, the Jessica Harrington-trained mare seems to
be settling into her own again this season.
The Richard Healy-bred mare is a daughter of the late
Knockhouse Stud sire Beneficial. She sold to George Mullins for a mere €3,500
at Tattersalls Ireland November National Hunt Sale in 2013 and she passed
through the ring once more at Tattersalls Ireland Derby Sale in 2015 where she
sold to Jessica Harrington for €27,000.
