Hightimeyouwon claimed his second Leopardstown success this season on Thursday evening when landing the Bulmers Live At Leopardstown Handicap under Cian MacRedmond for owners Shamrock Thoroughbreds.

Having broken nicely from the gates, the Garswood gelding raced mid-division in the early stages before Cian made his move after the turn for home where he stayed on strongly on the inside to hold on for victory from his fast finishing stablemate Half Nutz to win by a short head.
Speaking afterwards, Ado said, “Cian gave him a great ride. He was going to sit handier but they went quick and he sat off them. He’s riding with great confidence, things are going well for him, and he just let the race happen.

He was quite comfortable in the race and he picked up well. The key to this horse is ground, he loves top of the ground.

He’ll probably sneak into a big handicap now but we didn’t enter him up on Champions Weekend. He’ll try the racing league over in England, we might go over there with him one of the days. There will be plenty for him.”
