GOLDEN STATE JUVENILE STAKES QUOTES-FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2019

first_imgJOCKEY QUOTES      VICTOR ESPINOZA, TAP BACK, WINNER:  “I wasn’t sure about him.  He ran well for me the first time and then didn’t seem the same horse when we ran third.  Today when we were warming up on the backside, he felt like he was back to normal, just like the first time I rode him. We got a good break. I didn’t want to go head and head with the speed. When it was time to run, we took off.”   TRAINER QUOTES      JEFF BONDE, TAP BACK, WINNER: Asked if he expected to be in front:”He’s got a lot of natural speed and we’ve been really working hard to break off behind horses and get him to relax. He was just a little too keen in his early races, and in between them, we had time to really work with him and he responded.“I just told Victor (Espinoza), ‘Don’t let him do too much early. Try to get him into a rhythm. I know we’re going to be in front; just don’t let him burn himself up.’“It was a great race.”KATE BARTON, TAP BACK, WINNER: “I feel great. This means a lot to everyone…our family… our farm…it has taken a lot of years to get here. First stakes win so we are really excited.”(On future for Tap Back) “We’ll see what Jeff has planned for him. We weren’t exactly sure what to expect today, but we were quite pleased. So, we’ll see how he comes out and then establish a game plan.”NOTES: The winning owner is Richard Barton.last_img read more

first_imgThe beautiful Carrickfinn Beach.Leading travel website TripAdvisor have failed to select any Donegal beach in their list of the Top Ten beaches in Ireland.That has prompted some angry responses from Donegal residents both home and abroad who are dismayed at the fact that not ONE beach made it on to the list.We’re used to being overlooked in Donegal, and have been regularly dubbed ‘The Forgotten County’. But one thing we were always renowned for was having some of the most stunning beaches and scenery in the world.However, we now may need to re-evaluate that belief after leading travel giant TripAdvisor failed to select any Donegal beach in their list of the Top Ten in Ireland.One angry Donegal resident took to Facebook to express their surprise at Donegal’s omission from the list, “What an absolute joke of a selection from TripAdvisor, I’m sure there are plenty of other places in Ireland that are annoyed they didn’t make the list, but seriously how can we not get ONE beach on that list.Another posted under TripAdvisor’s post, “We have a number of the most beautiful beaches in the world here in Donegal, but we don’t make the Top Ten, did anyone even bother to visit Donegal? While another added, “I’ve been lucky enough to travel all over the world and see some beautiful places, but Donegal is up there with anything I’ve seen, can’t believe that’s not recognised in your selection.The Top Ten beaches selected by TripAdvisor were: No.1 – Inchydoney Beach, Clonakilty.No.2 – Derrynane Beach, Caherdaniel. No.3 – Inch Beach, Inch. No.4 – Lahinch Beach, Lahinch. N0.5 – Rossbeigh Beach, Glenbeigh. No.6 – Curracloe Beach, Curracloe. No.7 – Banna Strand, Tralee.
