Breaking Story makes headlines at Curragh

Sun 26 Aug 2018

Sheila Lavery’s Breaking Story ran out a ready 33-1 winner of the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden at the Curragh.

There were some regally-bred youngsters making their debut, principally from Ballydoyle, but none had an answer to the three-quarters-of-a-length winner.

Aidan O’Brien fielded newcomers out of Oaks winner Was, multiple Group One scorer Moonlight Cloud and Duntle, the latter two both by Galileo, but none could land a blow.

Robbie Colgan kept Breaking Story out of trouble down the centre of the track and he pulled nicely clear to defeat I Am Superman with something to spare.

“We really liked him. He’s been ready to run for a while but I just thought he looked very shelly so I’ve just given him time,” said Lavery.

“I wasn’t brave enough to make smart entries for him but I suppose I should have a look now.

“Robbie said that when he hit the front he had loads more horse, but he just kind of pulled himself up and then when he heard them coming he went on again.

“He’s home-bred and he’s another Dandy Man.”
