Allan purchase bags second hurdling victory

Pretty young mare ASSIR (Daylami-Etaaq by Sadler’s Wells) justified the faith and patience of owners Mr & Mrs Billy Coleman by winning for the second time at Ballinrobe yesterday. Trainer Coleman Hennessy had sent her out to win her maiden at Sligo last month and she followed up neatly in handicap company.

Purchased by Allan Bloodlines at Tattersalls December Sales, ASSIR is likely to be a breeding prospect before too long. To boost her prospects, she has a 3yo half sister by Danehill running and winning in the august colours of Mrs John Magnier. SO SO LUCKY is the half sister’s name. May it apply to all concerned with both half sisters.
