KILLEEN GLEBE GRAD IMPRESSES ON DEBUT
Killeen Glebe graduate EL GRANJERO shaped like a smart prospect when making a winning debut in Saturday’s four-year-old maiden at Moira point-to-point.
Ridden towards the back of the field by Luke Murphy, the Peter Flood owned and trained bay began to improve from three out and took second approaching the final fence. He produced a fine leap at the last and stayed on strongly to lead close home, winning by a head in what was by far the quickest time of the day.
The performance saw El Granjero selected as ‘Star Performer’ in Carl Evans’ popular ‘Points Of View’ feature in the EBN. The son of Youmzain was bought by Killeen Glebe with Mags O’Toole as a yearling and was resold by Killeen Glebe to his current trainer at the Tattersalls Ireland Derby Sale.
