Corrigeen Rock (Westerner) Makes A Winning Debut At Fairyhouse

Son Of Westerner Produces Perfect Debut Performance

The Denis Murphy-trained Corrigeen Rock (4g Westerner - Set In Her Ways, by Old Vic) produced a fine round of jumping to land the Tattersalls Ireland Derby Sale Four-Year-old Maiden at Fairyhouse on Saturday.

The newcomer was travelling well when asserting at the second last and success never looked in doubt, as he crossed the line four lengths clear. Winning rider Luke Murphy later described his mount as “a savage jumper.”

A half-brother to bumper winner Kitty Hall (Fame And Glory), the JJ Howlett-bred bay now looks set for a return to the sales ring.
