This absolutely striking blue bitch with magnificent ears is Flowerpot Susie, to be known as Noduff Imperial. Absinthe, as she is known in the kennel – yes, the training staff obviously have an alcohol problem – is not only unraced but she was also to have a formal trial in Ireland. She has been round Youghal twice informally from the sprint boxes but that is all so it will be fascinating to see how she gets on at Monmore and she is ready to go.

Absinthe came to us from breeder Chris in Tipperary who had previously supplied Noduff Aria.

It took her four trials to be graded on for racing and, as the trials progressed, it was clear that she was picking up the racing game. In her final trial on 13.4.22 she flew from the traps and led, only to be headed at the final bend. Gratifyingly, she came again showing great determination to win the trial. The time may only have been 29.34 but there was a good deal to like about how she did it and we look forward to her first race with interest.

I thought she showed good pace and was looking forward to her next outing but then she came into season. Hopefully she will start trialling again in June 2022.
