Heartbreak Kid (Getaway) Wins Impressively At Kirkistown

Getaway Gelding Impresses Connections On Debut

The Colin Bowe-trained Heartbreak Kid (4g Getaway - Bella’s Bury, by Overbury) impressed connections when winning on debut in a four-year-old maiden at Kirkistown on Saturday.

Clearly relishing the soft ground underfoot, the bay leapt into the lead at the second last and galloped home strongly to win by a distance. Winning rider Barry O’Neill afterwards expressed how taken he was with his mount’s performance and he is now expected to be offered at an upcoming sale.

Owned by Brendan Walsh and bred by Finian Magner, Heartbreak Kid comes from the family of Irish Grand National runner-up Knock Knock.
