5yo g Leading Light - There On Time (Carroll House)
This 5-y-o gelding was purchased at the Doncaster sales on Wednesday 8th September 2021 and has gained experience in Irish points, running his best race on his third and final start in that sphere
when sixth of 16 at Fairyhouse; the fifth has won a point since and the first and second have subsequently sold for £52k and £65k respectively. Sent over hurdles this summer, he built on a mid-field
finish in a competitive event at the Galway Festival when third at Tramore last month, posting a Racing Post Rating of 105 in the process. That form was given substance when the second, who is
trained by Henry de Bromhead, came out and won next time.
