Curragh Sun, 1st Jul, 2018
Red Avenger I'm absolutely delighted. It's great to get my first Curragh winner and on Derby weekend it makes it a bit more special,. I'm delighted for Cathal (McGuckin). He's with us the last year-and-a-half and he's been a big supporter of mine. Myself and my father own half of him and Cathal rang me during the week and said was there any chance of switching him into his colours for the Curragh. We got all the paper-work done of Friday. He's been unlucky, I don't think he's been ungenuine. He got stuck four or five wide in Limerick the last day. The time before he got a little injury and he was very unlucky in Leopardstown where he was a fast finishing third. On ground like this we'll keep him going. He's in at Bellewstown on Wednesday so myself and Rory have a bit of a decision to make now because we have Dance Alone, him and Geological in it. If he doesn't go there he'll be out again quick enough as long as the ground stays quick. Hopefully we can get him on a bit of a run now. He's the type of horse that's handicapped to win two or three so fingers crossed he does. We're absolutely delighted and it's smiles all round.
