Successful start to the season for Getaway

Successful start to the season for Getaway

Getaway has enjoyed an excellent start to the season having sired some impressive winners both on the point-to-point field and under rules on the track and so it is little surprise that he is the current joint-leading sire of four-year-old point-to-point winners this season.

The son of Monsun, who sired 13 point-to-point winners last season, produced another eye-catching sort in the Eric McNamara-trained I Can’t Explain who was a 12 length winner of his four-year-old maiden on debut at Rathcannon on the 22nd October.

Out of a sister to Strong Flow, I Can’t Explain put in a flawless display under Johnny Barry and powered clear from the final fence to win for his owner Michael Greaney who purchased the gelding from the Landrover sale for €15,000.

Grange Studs resident stallion enjoyed another fruitful day at Lisronagh when he sired not one but two high class four-year-old winners.

The Denis Murphy-trained Lust For Glory was one of six newcomers in the second division of the four-year-old mares’ maiden. Ridden by Jamie Codd she progressed to lead before the final fence and combined a good jump at the last with an impressive turn of foot to go away from her runner-up by five lengths.

Bought for €18,500 at the Landrover sale, she is out of a half-sister to Grade three winning mare Theatre Bird and was the top priced mare sold at last week’s Tattersalls Ireland Cheltenham sale when she was bought for £240,000 by Highflyer Bloodstock.

Getaway didn’t have to wait long for his next winner when the Vincent Halley-trained Getaway Trump stepped up notably on his third start between the flags to take the first division of the four-year-old geldings’ maiden at the same meeting by a convincing nine lengths.

Another graduate from the Landrover sale, he showed a notable amount of speed in the closing stages and handled the soft ground conditions admirably. He is out of a half-sister to the talented seven-time winner Paco Jack and was sold for £90,000 to Tom Malone and Paul Nicholls.

The following day at Galway, Gallaghers Cross, winner of his five-year-old geldings maiden at Punchestown in February, made an exciting bumper debut when he won the 2m contest by six lengths for the Peter Fahey yard and was another to create a stir in the sales ring at Cheltenham as he was sold for £260,000 again to Highflyer Bloodstock.

Just 24 hours later, Imperial Way got off the mark at Wexford in the bumper for Joseph O’Brien and Gigginstown House stud. The five-year-old was a five length winner over Mad Carew, another son of Getaway.

The two-time Group 1 winner sired a further two bumper winners in Ireland since the beginning of the month when Lady Ischia won at Naas for the Gavin Cromwell yard while Getoutameway won at Cork for John Nicholson.

The recent sale November National Hunt breeding sale at Tattersalls Ireland saw the 14-year-old sire finish second in the top ten sires for the entire sale as a result of the strong interest in his foals across the four days. From 56 foals offered, 48 were sold resulting in an average of €18,962 for the sire.
