Celtic Crown under Cian MacRedmond gained her first success for the team while staying on strongly to defeat stablemate Cordouan for owners Shamrock Thoroughbreds & Hazel McGuinness to win the Dublin To Bahrain Handicap at Leopardstown on 20th July last

Kept mid-division in the early stages, Cian made his move just after the 2 furlong pole where he then asserted clear in the final furlong to land the 9 furlong contest by 3 lengths.
Speaking afterwards, Ado said, “I think the ground is the key to her. She ran very well in the Ulster Oaks, she was only touched off in it. She didn’t run too bad the last day up the Curragh but it was a bit quick.

I have her in the Mile at Galway and she might climb into that now, hopefully she will. She won a premier handicap before on Guineas weekend and is a solid filly.

She was only a ten grand buy last year at the mares sales in Goffs. We just happened to be in the right place at the right time and she’s definitely paying her way.”
