Milan head shot

Unbeaten Son Of Milan A Poignant Winner

Iron Bridge (5g Milan - Chit Chat, by Bob Back) made it two from two when landing Thursday’s maiden hurdle at Ffos Las in the colours of the late Trevor Hemmings.

The son of Milan made a winning debut in a Tipperary bumper in March on his sole start for Damian Murphy and was partnered by Richie McLernon on his first start for the Jonjo O’Neill stable. Racing in midfield for much of the two and a half mile contest, he improved to lead at the second last and kept on well to win by two and a half lengths. Bill Baxter (Milan) completed a 1-2 for their Grange Stud sire.

Bred by Sean Murphy, Iron Bridge provides an important update for his half-brother by Vadamos, who is catalogued in the upcoming November NH Sale at Tattersalls Ireland.
