Furner's Green impresses at Tipperary

Furner’s Green (2c Dylan Thomas x Lady Icarus, by Rainbow Quest) announced himself as a colt of considerable potential with a impressive debut success over seven and a half furlongs at Tipperary. After being held up in mid-division by Joseph O’Brien, the Dylan Thomas juvenile swooped to take the lead passing the furlong pole and quickened away from his rivals for a convincing three-length verdict over Battle Of Saratoga (2c Dylan Thomas x Freedom, by Second Empire). "He has been showing plenty at home but was a little green," said O'Brien, who was sporting his mother Anne-Marie's colours, to irishracing.com. "He quickened up well and won very snugly at the end."
