Quiet Word has the answer for Westerley Breeze team; AROUND THE TRACKS OF A SYNDICATION NATION.

TRAMORE was certainly the racecourse for syndicates last week, with seven of them winning at the Waterford venue's two-day meeting and a further six landing minor honours over the weekend, writes Paul Cantwell. Among the victors included Model County Lass who is progressing as a talented bumper performer for trainer Colin Bowe and the White Gold syndicate who hail from Bree, Adamstown and Ferns in the area around Enniscorthy.

"She won three point-to-points this year and is a full-sister to Lively Lass, who won recently. She likes the good ground and won all her point-to-points on it," Bowe reported.

Also visiting the winner's enclosure at Tramore were the Devil's Bit syndicate, who saw their six-year-old Rock County record his first win in the Saltan Properties Handicap Hurdle for trainer Sabrina Harty.

The Iona Equine Syndicate's Sebadee provided the second leg of a 220-1 double for the John Murphy and Eddie Power team on Saturday, following up Iron Duke's win in the opener.

The Galway-based Westerly Breeze syndicate also had cause for celebration, with Quiet Word taking the opener on Sunday's card, when the Tippkill syndicate (Cooper's Crest), Munster Alliance syndicate (Echo Bob) and DAFTC syndicate (Clonard Lad) also visited Tramore's winner's enclosure.

Earlier in the week the Blessington-based Lakeside Racing syndicate bounced back from a disappointing visit to Cheltenham.

Trained by Jessica Harrington, their mare No One Tells Me took the 'It's a Student's Life' Handicap at Limerick on Tuesday evening. She will next be seen in the mares' hurdle at Punchestown on Saturday.

The Lakesiders were the second syndicate to visit the winner's circle, after the Michael Halfordtrained Hawkhill delighted the locally based RFH syndicate by overcoming 15 others to win the www.limerickraces.ie Online Special Handicap over a mile.

Halford indicated afterwards that the daughter of Hawk Wing is destined for a hurdling career.

The featured, County Mayobased, Carra Ethos syndicate were more than happy with Cadspeed's novice hurdle win at Gowran Park and were followed by the aptly titled Ultimate Dream syndicate who celebrated Meadows Thyne's success in the Thomastown Handicap Hurdle. In the process he completed a 239-1 treble for Davy Russell.

Another team to enjoy the fruits of victory last week were the Painestown syndicate. Their promising four-year-old Polar Explorer won the Derrinstown Stud Handicap at Tipperary on Thursday for Charles O'Brien.

In all, there were 57 races at Irish tracks last week, with syndicates taking 12 and another 13 outfits taking minor honours with their charges.

It is noticeable that syndicates are again better represented among entries for jumps, rather than Flat, meetings this week - so expect to see plenty of syndicates celebrating at the premier meeting at Punchestown.
