TRIMMERS LANE. 24 April 2010 Publisher-Kilcormac Glow.
Trimmers Lane is out of the unraced mare, Kilcormac Glen, from a family tracing back to Roberto.His sire Publisher only raced twice, making a winning debut at Yarmouth as a two year old, and then finishing third at Windsor in a Class 3, at the age of three, earning a Racing Post rating of 97.
Trimmers Lane was a late starter, not making his racecourse debut until he was six years of age, running out of the yard of J S Cullen in Boolavogue, County Wexford. He made his debut in a point to point at Borris House in December 2016, finishing third, beaten by 19 lengths. In January 2017 he was sent hurdling over two miles at Gowran Park, and finished well down the field. It was a similar story over the same course and distance in March, and again at Wexford in June.He was allotted a handicap mark of 85, but took up the option of running in another maiden hurdle, this time over two and a half miles, back at Gowran Park, but once again he failed to land a blow.His handicap debut came at Wexford in June over two and a half miles, but he soon became detached, and pulled up after three out. His last run for the J.S.Cullen yard was nearly six months later, in November, back in a point to point, this time at Kirkistown, where after being held up early, he made steady progress through the field, to win going away by three lengths.
It was shortly after that race that Trimmers Lane was sold, and joined us at Oakwood Stables.He made his debut at Catterick in January 2020 over three miles, and one furlong, from a stiff looking mark of 93, but was always in rear.He returned to Catterick 13 days later, showing his first signs of promise for us, under Billy Garritty, when staying on to finish 15 lengths behind Ask Paddy, after some indifferent jumping.At Carlisle in February he took a step backwards when pulling up, after never getting involved. His last race to date was at Sedgefield in March, over the extended two miles and three furlongs, but after being hampered by a first fence faller, he was always struggling to get competitive.
Trimmers Lane has had a good long break, and can now race off a more realistic mark in the low 80's, so hopefully this lightly raced 10 year old might add to his point to point success.
