‘Granny’ Is On Fire

Trade Fair three-year-old filly Granny On Fire continued her sparkling Irish form with a nine-length win at Ballinrobe yesterday. (Monday August 12)

Granny On Fire started the 11/4 second favourite in the Burleigh Accountants Handicap (nine furlongs) but turned the race into a one-act affair.

The success followed Granny On Fire’s four-length win in the Invader Handicap (one mile) at Bellewstown on┬áJuly 6.
Granny On Fire, trained by Michael Mulvany and ridden by Shane Grey, is from Kashra, by Dancing Dissident.
