It’s all about the Ballymacs folks!

Ballymac Beanie won a thoroughly merited Irish Oaks with another magnificent performance at Shelbourne Park. The puppy clocked 28.18 in the decider having recorded 28.04 and 28.02 earlier in the event.

Meanwhile Ballymac Wild, so impressive in the Irish Derby, is going even better in the Leger clocking 29.43 in the fastest semi.

But you might argue that the debut of Ballymac Cashout was the best of the three. The 19 month old clocked 28.12 on debut at Cork. From the same litter as the Clonmel selection Iconic Journey, the 35kg blue is a younger full brother to Smallmead out of the brilliant Ballymac Razl (Ballymacs Tas, Syd, Ramsey etc)
