Champagne West (Westerner)

Champagne is Listed winner for Westerner

Roger Brookhouse’s colours were carried to victory in the feature event at Tramore on Monday by Champagne West (9g Westerner-Wyndham Sweetmarie, by Mister Lord). The son of Westerner was saddled by Henry De Bromhead to win the Listed Attheraces Chase by 12 lengths under David Mullins and looks set for a step up in grade. "I'm delighted with him, he did it really well and got a great ride from David again. He just loves that soft ground, and he just ploughs on through it,” said de Bromhead.  "He is lovely horse and we will see now what is coming up. He could go for something like the G2 Kinloch Brae Chase at Thurles or the G2 Red Mills Chase at Gowran.”

A winning point-to-pointer, Champagne West was bred by Peter Byrne.
