There were just a couple of runners from Rathbride at the final Dundalk meetings of 2021 this month, starting off with Fictitious Lady, who didn't run badly when sixth on her return to the all-weather.
A decision has been made to call time on her racing career and it was great that she managed to get a win on the board earlier this year at Bellewstown, a track she was very effective around.
We also had Morning Approach in action twice during the month, finishing sixth on both occasions. She wasn't beaten all that far over seven furlongs last time and will probably appreciate stepping back up in trip.
On behalf of Amanda and I, we’d like to wish everyone a very happy Christmas and send our best wishes for 2022.
Here's hoping for better times ahead when we can hopefully return to something more like normality in terms of Covid
