Mullins makes history in Gowran Park

first_imgUnder the guidance of Ruby Walsh, the 9/2 shot comfortably won the Goffs Thyestes Handicap Chase by 8 lengths.The wins sees Mullins become the most successful trainer in the history of the race – his six victories have seen him overtake the tally of the legendary Tom Dreaper.Afterwards, the winning trainer said: “It’s fantastic to win the race six times. It took me long enough to win my first one. On His Own won this off top weight and was only just beaten in a Gold Cup so we’ll have to think of going the same way with this horse. “We always thought he could be a Gold Cup horse. It was probably an unfair question to ask him in the Hennessy on his first run of the season but we felt he was nicely handicapped.“That race will take a fair bit out of him so he wouldn’t run between now and Cheltenham. The way he travelled and jumped was great, and I don’t think Ruby had a moment’s worry.”last_img
