Inns Of Court landed an important milestone in his nascent career on Monday when his son Megarry landed the Listed Blenheim Stakes at Fairyhouse for Gavin Cromwell. For good measure, his tough daughter Lia Fail also ran third.
They become the second and third stakes performers from the successful first crop of Inns Of Court after the multiple stakes-placed Gaenari.
Previously successful at the Curragh before falling only narrowly short to Lia Fail in a rated race at Navan, Megarry took it up inside the final furlong under Gary Carroll and always had enough in reserve to win impressively by over two lengths from Mansa Musa.
"Every run he's been improving and he was very professional there today," said Gary Carroll. "Hopefully there is more ahead.
“I didn't make enough use of him the last day, I should have won. It was a good run, he's very honest, and hopefully he'll step forward again.
“He jumped, travelled, and going to the two I knew he'd get to the line strong, he wasn't stopping. He'll get seven anyway, six or seven furlongs, handles any ground and he's very straight-forward.”
Megarry was bred by the Highest Praise Syndicate out of the Acclamation mare Highest Praise, whose earlier foals include the winning Cotai Glory siblings Adeb and Gypsy Woman.
Megarry contributes to a great eight days for Inns Of Court that also includes Tropical Island, who captured a competitive nursery at York for Richard Fahey, Ffos Las winner Burdett and Italian winner Nosy Be.
