FIVE UP FOR ROBIN DES FORET

09 October 2017

ROBIN DES FORET (IRE) has had quite the year for trainer Willie Mullins and yesterday was no different when he took the Listed Novice Hurdle at Limerick Racecourse. Since breaking his maiden in August 2016 he holds the record of five wins from seven starts over hurdles.

Despite his impressive resume the seven-year-old gelding was the apparent second string to stable mate Fabulous Saga. However, ROBIN DES FORET (IRE) came out on top and finished seven lengths clear of his rival under jockey Paul Townend. He is a son of Anngrove Stud sire Robin Des Pres and a half-brother to Group 2 performer Port Melon (IRE).
