Sheikh Mohammed Sends Yearlings to 6 Irish Trainers
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum's bloodstock adviser John Ferguson announced they will send 12 yearlings to 6 different Irish-based trainers ahead of the 2010 season: 2 each to John Oxx, Jim Bolger, Dermot Weld, Ger Lyons, Michael Halford & David Marnane. Ferguson told racingpost.com: "Sheikh Mohammed felt he would like to have horses in training in Ireland next year. Ireland has a number of talented horsemen & rather than have all the horses with 1 trainer, he thought that having a blend of trainers was an attractive idea."
