Improving Getaway Mare Gets Off The Mark At Ballingarry
Gata Ban (5m Getaway - Meryemnana, by Pistolet Bleu) built on a promising fourth last time out to take the five-year-old mares’ maiden at Ballingarry on Saturday afternoon.
Noel O’Neill’s charge was positioned in mid-division by Darragh Allen and improved to challenge at the second last. Soon in front, she kept on well on the run-in to win by two lengths.
Trained by O’Neill for David Rice and Cian Fleming, the daughter of Getaway will now be sold. She is the first foal bred by A Larkin out of Meryemnana.
