Barry Drake

In this week’s podcast Barry Drake is joined by a trainer who has enjoyed amazing recent success, Patrick Guilfoyle.

It has been a particularly good year for Patrick to date with Explosive Boy being the most recent dog to add to Guilfoyle’s list of victories with the 2022 Dundalk International. Patrick chats about how Explosive Boy is getting strong and stronger and how he is a more relaxed dog this year which has been a contributing factor to his success. Patrick was doubly represented at the 2022 Dundalk International by Explosive Boy and Good Cody, and he says both dogs ran powerful races with Good Cody securing 3rd place. His next destination for Good Cody is the 2022 Irish Greyhound Derby.

They reflect on some more of Patricks recent victories. They discuss Magical Mary, the 2022 RPGTV Irish Cesarewitch winner and the smashing winning performance of Vincenzo in last Saturday nights Shelbourne Champion 500 Final.

They turn their attention to the 2022 Corn Cuchulainn Open 750 final which will take place this Saturday evening at Shelbourne Park Greyhound Stadium. Pat is represented by star performer Magical Poppy in this competition.

They end their chat talking about Wi Can Dream as Pat discusses his promising recovery that he has made since his tendon injury.
