Aidan O’Brien’s El Salvador (4/7 fav) found plenty in the closing stages to justify favouritism in the SeanieMac.com Race at Killarney last night.
The durable son of Galileo got a fine drive from Aidan’s daughter, Ana, who continues to improve and impress.
The five-year-old moved smoothly through the contest, but Ana then had to get deadly serious with him from the two furlong pole.
She had a willing partner, however, and El Salvador battled on powerfully to hold Fire Fighter and Gambling Girl by three parts of a length and a neck.
Commented Aidan: “He’s a grand horse, he seems to be best when busy and will be kept busy.” (Pat Keane).
Another winner on the Killarney card last night for this blog was Stay De Night (P J Smullen, 6/4 fav).
