Money rounds off memorable day for de Bromhead
Mind Your Money rounded off a memorable day for Henry de Bromhead at his local track, as she claimed the concluding Irish Stallion Farms EBF Mares (Pro/Am) INH Flat Race.
Earlier in the afternoon, de Bromhead paraded some of his stable stars, with Balko Des Flos, Minella Times, Minella Indo, Honeysuckle and Put The Kettle On doing a few laps of the parade ring.
Out of luck with his other runners on the card, Mind Your Money ensured the Knockeen handler didn’t go home empty-handed.
Fourth in a Listed contest at Fairyhouse on her most recent start, the five-year-old was sent off the 15/8 second favourite for this two mile contest.
Settled in mid-division on the outer by Harry Swan, the Kayf Tara bay took closer order as they raced down the back straight for the final time and travelled smoothly into second with two furlongs left to race.
Sent to the front over a furlong from home, she kept on well from there and had two-and-three parts of a length to spare at the line.
Newcomer Malina Girl (33s early and returned 11s) came home strongly to take second under Joey Dunne for Gavin Cromwell, while Memorable Daise (11/8f) was another two-and-a-half lengths back in third.
"She is a lovely mare and I’m delighted with that," de Bromhead said.
"Obviously her run the last day looked really good. Harry was brilliant on her. She jumps really well at home so hopefully she will have a nice career over hurdles.
"The parade was incredible and there was a great reception. It’s such a shame that crowd can’t be here but it was lovely for us and all the team to get a reception like it."
