Impressive Son Of Westerner Not For Catching
State Of Power (5g Westerner - Strong Statement, by Trans Island) produced an impressive front-running performance to win the Five-Year-Old Geldings Maiden at Knockanard by all of 50 lengths.
The Harley Dunne owned and trained bay was ridden to make all by Tiernan Power Roche. He continued to lead the field of 14 at the final fence, where his nearest rivals fell and left his victory in no doubt.
A return to the sales ring is now in store for State Of Power, who was bred by Mr Neil Roche. The son of Westerner provides an important update for his yearling and four-year-old full-brother, with the latter named Challenging Times having been purchased by Monbeg Stables at the 2021 store sales.
