Simply Wings wins big at Lingfield Park 21/12/2014
Simply Wings (1/2 brother to Ballynagour also bred at Loughview) won the handicap chase at Lingfield today. He was the oldest horse and was ridden by Ballynagour’s jockey Tom Scudamore. What a brilliant horse to still be winning big races without much coaxing at the grand old age of 10!!
Success at the sales
Graham and family were at the Tattersalls’ November hunt sales at the weekend with Present Line’s yearling gelding where they were short-listed to the finals of the gelding championships.

Irish Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association
The ITBA Northern Regions Awards took place on Thursday, 11th September 2014 at the Beechlawn House Hotel, Belfast, this year our yard owner Graham T. Morrow was recognised for breeding the Group 1 Racehorse Ballynagour and so he picked up the award for CHELTENHAM FESTIVAL and GRADED NH WINNERS. His father Richard Morrow has won this award twice previously. Well done Graham!
After an incredibly hard journey into this life through being rescued from joining her mother in death by the acquisition of a foster mare, wee Tawny is turning into a lovely foal, for more details on her breeding and age see our “Upcoming” section of the website.
Ballynagour comes second in Punchestown
After his Cheltenum win, Ballynagour was re graded as a Grade one hunt racehorse, and his first major race was at Punchestown. Ballynagour held his own throughout the race and finished a respectable second place! High hopes for this horse! For all future races see the full list here.
Ballynagour wins at Cheltenham
Well he has finally done it, Ballynagour bred here at Loughview has won at Cheltenham. To quote the press “Ballynagour, a big gamble 12 months ago, ran away with the Byrne Group Plate this year at the Cheltenham Festival.”
