Downpatrick born Trainer Brian Hamilton has had to endure a quiet enough time of things. All of his racecourse entries lately have been running above expectations without winning.
His last racecourse winner 324 days ago nevertheless to his credit he was only had 9 runners on course from that date and the majority of them entries have hit the frame. It is still frustrating because of the sheer effort his meticulous team at Ballynoe stables put in.
Principally Hamilton’s operation is selling stables however in recent times the likes of Gigginstown House Stud have given Hamiltion extra safety by sending him six pointers to train. That must be considered a major complement to his training capabilities, as they don’t suffer fools gladly.
A couple of thoroughbreds from Hamilton’s yard have caught the eye of late including Dynamic Allen who has been a model of consistency this season. Each run this horse appears to be improving further and his fast finishing second placed effort recently at Fairyhouse stalwartly recommended it won’t be too long until he is amongst the winners.
“Dynamic Allen is an early declaration for Downpatrick racecourses meeting this Friday evening. I’d assume him to take all the beating if he turns up at Hamilton’s local track”
Another runner from Hamilton’s yard who ran above market expectations at Down Royal on Bank Holiday Monday was the Mary Kelly owned Darkest day. This Four-year-old was having his first racecourse appearance in the concluding bumper. He was punted from 33/1 into a much shorter 5/1 shot, the colossal market move was almost justified when the smooth travelling son of Alzavoski traded as short as 1/3 in running entering the final furlong prior to getting run out, partially due to race-inexperience.
That was a taking debut performance from a young horse and next time out I strongly reason this horse will be very hard to stop.
“Racecourse debuts have long been considered a pipe-opener for future assignments and this horse screeched out to be as a potential winner in the waiting with more experience”
Brian Hamiltion is long enough in this game to comprehend sometimes the results don’t go your way, you must sit tight and ride the storm. His Ballynoe stables appears to be ready to come out the other side. Winners are imminent.
