Ventura Rebel got a deserved group win in the Group 3 Qatar Racing And Equestrian Club Renaissance Stakes at the Curragh on Saturday. He was held up towards the rear on the near side and was pushed along after halfway. He began to make headway two furlongs out and was switched right with under two furlongs to go. Jockey Declan McDonogh began to ask him for his full effort entering the final furlong and Rebel duly responded to take the lead well inside the final furlong scoring by half-a-length. Big congratulations to owner Abdullah Menahi.
Many thanks also to Richard Brabazon and his team for looking after Rebel during his time in Ireland and thanks to the Ciara Doyle at the Curragh for helping with all arrangements for our recent trips over the Irish sea.
