    Fri 25 Sep 2015

  • Dazzling victory for Blue De Vega

    Wed 23 Sep 2015

    Having been extremely unlucky on his debut at Dundalk when beaten just over a length despite being very slowly away having been in the stalls for over seven minutes, two year-old colt Blue De Vega made no mistake on his second start at Naas today.  Despite having to travel wide throughout from a wide draw, Blue De Vega was always travelling well within himself and powered clear to win by almost five lengths from 15 rivals.  Blue De Vega was purchased as a yearling for €32,000 by Stroud Coleman at the 2014 BBAG Yearling Sale in Baden-Baden, Germany from top German breeders Gestut Ammerland.  Trainer Michael O'Callaghan holds the son of Lope De Vega in the very highest regard and plenty more is expected in the future.
