    Would love to see Pestana skip clear and see can they catch him, should be a great final.

    Well fcuk it anyway.every other year it’s televised and the year we can’t go to it they don’t show it


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,706 ✭✭✭ Doctors room ghost


    My money is on meenagh miracle out of 2 at 40/1 With paddy power.
    I’m hoping for a savage quick break from traps cross ballymac wild and grab the rail and pull away after the first turn.
    She’s resting up this week with light work so hoping she’s fresh starting.
    It’s all a guess though and she needs a quick break and to steal the rail but she has it all to do against some top class dogs.
    GO ON THE MIRACLE

    I agree.it would be nice if they televised it for the year that’s in it and we not allowed in.it was on every other year. The build up to it would have been nice.it will be just another race on the rpgtv channel I’d say

    Rpgtv have interviews from the track and will build up to it

    they also know more than ger canning about dog racing

    the rte coverage was terrible and its not a great loss in my opinion

    i just watch the plane track feed that i use for the videos .

    What? After the hatchet job they’d done?? Thankfully RGPTV did a decent job as IGB site couldn’t cope!

    Seen a video on Instagram on pestana.he has recovered well from surgery.he’s off to stud soon. I wonder how much would it cost for a cover.
    Great to see him doing well

    Wheres that based?
    I wouldn’t mind a pup off meenagh miracle if they bred her.she definitely could have pipped new inn Taylor in the final if she held the rail on the last turn.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,706 ✭✭✭ Doctors room ghost


    Out of curiosity does anyone know if Oran jack bred any winners after he went to stud?I can’t find much on him.I think if memory serves me was he killed in a kennel fire after winning a st ledger?would have been around 1990s


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,706 ✭✭✭ Doctors room ghost


    Actually it was 81 he won the st ledger and he was at stud up to 89.has anyone anymore information on Oran jack? Thanks

    Kyle Jack Irish Derby 86

    Sullane Princess English oaks 86
    Oran Express Easter Cup 85

    He pups threw great dogs too, including

    Borna Best Oaks 97

    Go onto Greyhound data and you will get as much information as you want, if your interested in breeding you could spend hours on the site.
