Whisky On The Hill completed a hat-trick of Western wins this season when coming home strongly under Adam Caffrey to land the Abbey Hotel H’cap at Roscommon on Tuesday evening (22nd May) last.
He’s going to go to the field in the morning, probably for ten days, and then we’ll bring him back for the mile-and-a-half in Galway for three-year-olds. On softer ground you’ll see a better horse again. I was very close to taking him out because I was a bit concerned about the ground this evening.
He travelled very sweet today and he surprised me. I’m sure the jumps lads would like a horse like him and he could be sold now.
He’s had three quick runs and I was a bit concerned as he lost 15kg last week after Sligo and I was very worried. We had him back to a kilo below his weight today and we were delighted he’d put back on so much. He’s tough.”
