Yeats debut bumper winner could be “very, very good horse”

Sir Will winning a bumper at Naas

Trainer Harry Kelly has seen some high-class bumper performers pass through his hands and he holds Sir Will (4g Yeats-Tinopasa, by No Pass No Sale), a debut winner at Naas on Sunday, in high regard.

The son of Yeats, who was bred by Paudie Ryan, lined up in what looked a classy bumper with a big home reputation, started as 7/4 favourite on his first run, and despite looking green, the four-year-old never gave his supporters too much worry.

“I thought coming here he was going to be green and he was very very green,” Kelly told “He could be, potentially, a very very good horse. He’s the opposite to his sister (black-type performer Que Pasa) and is lazy more than anything. He could have done with a lead for a lot longer.

“There is plenty of improvement in him as he’s a big bull. Thankfully it worked out and he’s for sale obviously.”
