Ellen Mooney proves

smart buy at 5,000gns

BRYAN SMART'S eye for a bargain when he paid just 5,000gns for Ellen Mooney as a yearling has helped him towards his best season numerically, and he reached 20 for the year when the filly gained her second win in the first leg of the nursery,

"I love horses by her sire Efisio, as they all always try, and though she was only small when she was sold I liked what I saw," Smart said.

There was, though, a sting in the tail for winning jockey Paul Eddery, who was suspended for one day (October 17) for causing interference to Solomon's Mine due to careless riding.

Hannon`s Zandicular one for the future

Richard Hannon, Dane O'Neill, and the sire Forzando pulled off a 40-1 double with Zandicular and My Raggedy Man.

The trainer's son, Richard, forecast a bright second season for Zandicular after the colt had won the

six-furlong juvenile maiden.

David McCabe was fined pounds 110 for not reporting that Rockon Arry had gurgled in Zandicular's race.

Owner Quinn on target

Mick Quinn, whose training licence was withdrawn in the summer, is still enjoying life as an owner and has a share in Dragon Flyer who won the five-furlong two-year-old maiden.

Catlin strikes again

Chris Catlin, champion apprentice elect, reached 62 for the season when Zhitomir just got the better of Mr Pertemps in the first leg of the seven-furlong handicap.
