No Nay Never Colt Pounces Late For Valuable Prize
The Charles O’Brien-trained Tammany Hall (2c No Nay Never - Anna David, by Sleeping Indian) came from last to first to land the Premier Nursery at Navan on Thursday.
Second last time out at the Curragh, the son of No Nay Never dropped back to the minimum trip on his latest start and raced towards the back of the field under Billy Lee. Switched right to challenge approaching the final furlong, he ran on well to lead close home and beat the favourite Tar Heel (Zoffany) by half a length.
The winning rider later commented, “They went a good gallop and I was able to bide my time. To be fair to him, when I got out of the dip and grabbed a hold of him, he picked up well. It's a nice pot to land. Hopefully, if conditions stay right, there might be another race in him before the year is out.”
Owned by the C’Est La Vie Syndicate, Tammany Hall was bred by Miss Anna Giunta out of a full-sister to the dam of German 1,000 Guineas winner Axana.
