Tooreen Legend landed the Ladies Derby today at The Curragh going 1 place better than last year’s 2nd place. Nina Carberry had her mount always handy, was 2nd 2f out, challenged in the straight, led from 2f out and kept on well under a strong drive to prevail by 1 1/4 lengths.
“He’s a solid old horse. He keeps finding and Nina gave him a great ride,” said Fozzy Stack.
“He was second in this last year carrying 12-1 and they changed the conditions slightly this year.
“He wants very fast ground. We could try him again over hurdles but it’s hard for him with the way they water the jumps tracks. He should have won a three-year-old hurdle at Roscommon a couple of years ago.” irishracing.com
