FAITH Ponsonby, who had a very busy week as chief steward at last week’s Dublin Horse Show, hopefully had time to relax and watch Monday’s racing from Ballinrobe where she bred a winner.

Bringing up a double for trainer Emmet Mullins and jockey Donagh Meyler and carrying the colours of Annette Mee, the five-year-old Sea Music justified 11/10 favouritism by 12 lengths in the Connolly’s Red Mills Irish EBF Auction Maiden Hurdle.

Sea Music, by Sea Moon, is the last of just three thoroughbred foals, and the only one to race, out of the point-to-point-winning Sweet Music. That 1998 Accordion mare is, in turn, out of Bucktan (by Buckskin) which makes her a half-sister to the Siberian gelding Kilcooley Michael who is campaigned at CCI3* level by Faith’s daughter, Emma Newsam.

Sweet Music has one progeny listed on the Irish Horse Register – the 2015 Rockrimmon Silver Diamond gelding Kilcooley Seanachai who competing under Eventing Ireland rules briefly in 2019, also ridden by Newsam.
