Family Affair As Getaway Mare Gains Maiden Win

Eugene O’Sullivan celebrated success as owner, breeder and trainer when Getaway Totherock (6m Getaway - Theft, by Silver Patriarch) landed the Mares Maiden at Kildorrery on Sunday.

Ridden by O’Sullivan’s nephew Michael, the mare was given a confident ride, her pilot biding his time to make a late challenge and beat Ulterior Motives by half a length. The bay mare had shown good promise last time out when second to The Best In Town (Flemensfirth) at Templenacarriga.

Getaway Totherock is the first foal out of the mare, a bumper winner during her racing career for O’Sullivan.
