Western Flyer (Westerner) Wins The Five Year Old Maiden At Tipperary

Son Of Westerner Delivers On Debut Promise

Western Flyer (5g Westerner - Hangar Six, by Oscar) built on a promising debut to run out an easy winner of the five-year-old maiden at Tipperary on Sunday.

Third on the first attempt in December, the John Staunton-trained bay produced a professional performance on return and led after the penultimate fence. He kept on to score by three lengths with minimum fuss under Derek O’Connor.

Owned by Frank Reynolds, Western Flyer was bred by Lakeview House Stud out of a half-sister to Grade 3 winning hurdler Ballynacree (Westerner).
