See Double You Becomes Oldest Winner In Ireland For 32 Years

See Double You became the oldest winner in Ireland for 32 years yesterday, when scoring at Roscommon in the Leo Dolan Memorial Handicap Hurdle.

Trained by The Jam Man's trainer Ronan McNally, the veteran won for the eighth time in his career under rules at the grand old age of sixteen, over double the age of runner-up Pump Road.

In an average looking race at a level where not too many fairytales are told, the horse who made his racecourse debut back in 2008 became the eldest to win on the track in Ireland since Matthew Duggan's The Ladys Master landed a Tipperary handicap chase way back in 1987.

McNally was brought close to tears, as his old boy turned back the clocks to record his first win since September 2018 at Hexham where another record sits with Bishopdale, who also won a race at the age of 16 in 1997.

(Credit: Racing Post) He said: "It's unbelievable. He did it at 15 but it's hard to believe he'd do it at 16. He's been a very special horse for me.

"I think in Ireland there probably hasn't been a 16-year-old to win. I know in England there has been, but I really wanted him to win over here to get him into the history books."

Rated 81 over timber - five pounds inferior to his chase mark, Darragh O'Keeffe's mount was reverting back to hurdles for just the second time since October, after a series of well-beaten efforts over fences.

The jockey on board was born incredibly just three years before the horse was, and McNally reflected on what can only be described as the horse of a lifetime to train as well as own.

He added: "I bought this horse the day after my dad was buried so he means a lot to me. He's so fresh and is looked after like a baby - the whole family just loves and adores him."

However, McNally admits that retirement will soon loom for a real titan at the grass route levels in racing.

He said: "That would probably be a good note to finish on with him but I'm going to ride him over in England once to take the penalty off him and probably finish him on that.

"I've won on him seven or eight times, so for myself and him that's how we'll finish. He's a legend."

Winning at odds of 8/1, the old boy was forced to knuckle down grimly crossing the final two obstacles, and stayed on stoutly up the run-in to score.

"I thought he'd hit the front maybe a bit soon, they were all coming to challenge but knuckled down and jumped the last three - Jesus, he didn't let us down," the trainer continued.

"It was awesome, I'm speechless," he finished.
