We waited for a year for one, then to get a call for two almost the same day.

This means that when they're totally out of operations here, two buildings will be available in the Tyler market.

She's had a few little niggles. But she needs a run now. I don't expect her to beat Hardy Eustace and Macs Joy but as long as she shows us she's well, I'll be happy. If she did run a big race then we'd consider the Champion Hurdle, but at the moment the World Hurdle is the plan.

Ruby rides most of mine when he can but I'd have had absolutely no qualms with Paul Carberry (who had ridden the mare on her two previous outings) either.

As they have taken this project around to trade shows, they have been approached by other communities about producing the product there. We want to encourage a strong, growing company to continue growing in Smith County.

We are leaning towards the Champion Hurdle now and I would say she is 90 per cent certain to run in that race. The ground has eased and Ruby Walsh is keen to ride her. She is very well and deserves a crack at it.

It's a manufacturer that has international ownership structure, and this project would generate just over 500 jobs, but they're still looking at a number of places in Texas and in surrounding states. It's a laundry list for that and the others at this point.
