Jack Hobbs Wins Irish Derby

Congratulations to Willie and Elaine Carson for breeding the Irish Derby winner JACK HOBBS from the mare SWAIN’S GOLD which I selected and purchased for them.

She cost $180,000 at Keeneland’s January sale in 2007, and she has tried their patience (and mine) in the interim. But she has now vindicated my judgement and produced a magnificent specimen who can run like the wind.

Willie and Elaine work their farm hands-on every day and fully deserve this success.

Well done guys!
