Rider Alice Homer
“We’ve known Ballinclare’s breeder Jane Bradbury of the Bloomfield stud for years; my granddad, David Tatlow, sources a lot of their horses and I often go over to their base in Ireland to ride and help out.
“We’d seen ‘Annie’ as a yearling and she’d always caught the eye. We bought her as a three-year-old and she came over to us last year. She has been really gorgeous in every way.
