Dermot Weld enjoyed some great days with Vinnie Roe in the past, most notably when landing four consecutive renewals of the Irish St. Leger. Now the master of Rosewell House has a talented son of the five-time Group 1 winner on his hands in the shape of Show Court who ran out an easy 6½-length winner of the three-year-old maiden at Leopardstown on Sunday.
“Show Court is a nice type who should develop into a useful dual purpose horse later in the year,” said Weld of the winner.
Vinnie Roe stands under the Coolmore N.H. banner at Grange Stud. His first crop five-year-olds include exciting prospects Mumbo Jumbo (Mags Mullins), Claret Cloak (Emma Lavelle), Waterunder (David Pipe), Our Vinnie (Charles Byrnes), Musical Knight (Ronnie O’Leary) etc.
