Sparkman: Carrick a reminder of Giant's Causeway's greatness
Dear Partners and Friends,
For those of you who didn't catch it live, IRISH FREEDOM didn't just WIN his comeback race last night at Del Mar, he was magnificent!!!
If you haven't seen the race, see below and be prepared to be dazzled. IRISH broke poorly (last) and had to be used hard five wide as he made his way to the leaders. IRISH continued to race widely around the first two turns and down the backstretch being asked to improve his position the whole time. Despite the rough start IRISH had caught up with all but the front runner as they approached the turn for home and then he inhaled the leader and drew off with nothing but hand urging.
