Sneezy Foster joins the Sunday training team
Sunday racing are delighted to announce that Denise 'Sneezy' Foster will be joining the Sunday training team.
Denise is originally from Belfast but has been training horses for most of her career in County Meath. She comes from a show jumping and three-day eventing background and began training point to pointers originally.
The 67-year-old had been training at Possextown Farm in Enfield for more than 20 years before taking over at Cullentra House Stables this season.
Cullentra House Stables is based in Longwood, County Meath, and provides the perfect training ground to train winners. It has three different custom built gallops including woodchip and sand gallops which are ideal for building up a horses fitness. They also provide the perfect surface for strength and conditioning as well as fast work. There is a steady, uphill all-weather gallop on site too.
Cullentra houses state of the art, world-class facilities such as a modern swimming pool and horse walker, making it the ideal place to train the best horses.
Some of the greatest modern day horses have been trained at Cullentra, including dual Grand National winner, Tiger Roll, 2016 Gold Cup winner Don Cossack as well as a total of 35 Cheltenham Festival winners. Cullentra has also housed two Royal Ascot winners, making it a top class training facility.
At the most recent Cheltenham Festival in March, Denise Foster sent out three winners, four seconds and two thirds from Cullentra House. She has also tasted big race flat success when saddling Lily's Diamond to win the Heitage Stakes at Navan in 2016.
We're looking forward to seeing what Denise and her team at Cullentra House can do with one of our most recent purchases, the five-year-old mare, Scarlet Witch.
Scarlet Witch is a stunning looking young mare who won impressively at Cork on only her second run in point to points. In that race, she displayed two of the most important qualities that you look for in a national hunt racehorse – natural jumping ability and pace. She came well recommended by her point to point trainer, Denis Murphy, and former champion amateur jockey, Jamie Codd.
We expect her to be making her racecourse debut in a bumper around the end of July or start of August so now is the perfect time to get involved with this promising, young mare.
We are delighted to be offering the daughter of Masked Marvel for syndication. She will be the first Sunday horse to be trained by Denise Foster at Cullentra House Stables.
Welcome to the Sunday team, Sneezy!
