Have they vanished into thin air down there in Carlow??

For the biggest stable in Ireland they had very few runners so far this Winter Season, and nothing entered up from what i can see over the next week of any interest.

Is there a bug down there folks?? or is he just taking longer to get his stable full of talent  ready for the big prizes.

I am only guessing Ruby but could well be a deliberate ploy,he started last year a lot quicker than previous years and they had a quiet spell in and around Cheltenham. Some of his runners ran deplorably at Listowel,they eirher won or tailed off.
Deliberate ploy or maybe there is a problem??
In the last fortnight has only had 13 runners and 2 winners and all runners have been lesser lights.Only 1 bumper runner during that period beaten 25l.

I only see there summer horses entered up over the coming week orther than than Grade 1 Hurdle at Punchestown.

No updates on Un Atout or Samain etc etc. Very strange for a very media hungry outfit

Sunday 18th November,Morgianna hurdle-Hurricane Fly.

I suppose his most high profile runner so far was a thousand stars dismal run in Tipp hurdle but Mullins said he would need it.

Its not like these are nothing race meets.


They are all big weekends now up to xmas plenty of important races for the season. I personally think he gives his horse not enough practice going to the Festival unless he is changing tactics and running them more frequently but later on in the season

for what its worth lads..he did say it a interview that his winter horses are 2wks behind plus ive been told some of his have runny noses..(apparently normal for this time of year } so i prusume we.ll see normal service in the next 2wks..

As regards the health of his string, the champion trainer remarked:

"Whatever was there seems to be gone now but we had a few horses coughing and it slowed things down for about ten days. We got some of the fillies that were coughing out of the yard.
