Did you know: Sandra took over her father Dessie's trainers’ licence in the days following his death in November 2014 and wasted little time in getting among the winners. She saddled Lieutenant Colonel to win the Grade 1 Bar One Racing Hatton´s Grace Hurdle at Fairyhouse within a fortnight of acquiring her licence and the same horse went on to win the Grade 1 Squared Financial Christmas Hurdle at Leopardstown that December. Another notable early success came Sandra's way when Sub Lieutenant won the Grade 2 Michael Purcell Memorial Novice Hurdle at Thurles in February of 2015. Better was to come as she trained Thunder And Roses, ridden by Katie Walsh, to win the BoyleSports Irish Grand National in April, 2015.
