Base Player hits the right note!
Boardsmill Studs recent run of success continued in Navan
on Sunday, 16 March 2008, as the impressive Base Player
ran out winner of the Discover Meath (Pro/Am) INH Flat Race
on his racecourse debut.
Settled towards the rear for most of the race, Base Player made
his move through the field before the home turn and was travelling
best of all coming down the descent at the top of the straight.
He quickly asserted under Andrew Duff and powered up the hill away
from previous bumper winners Judge Roy Bean and Laisse Viern. Interestingly,
it was this same winners bumper that was won by Brave Inca
Winning trainer Denise Foster said He had shown us ability
at home and will be better on better ground. He will now head for
the Goffs Land Rover Bumper at Punchestown. He's the first horse
I've trained for Edward Campbell, who is away on holiday,"

Goffs Land Rover Sale. He is now the 6th winner from the Orchestra
mare Theatral. Base Player is a half brother to the Grade 3 winning
Juvenile Hurdler Spirit Dancer who won 6 races in total.
Theatral still has two year old and yearling geldings both by Boardsmill

again. She is due to be covered by Kalanisi this year.
This is a third generation Boardsmill graduate as Base Players
