(2009 Kalanisi - Juresse)
"He's got a great staying pedigree and Kalanisi should add plenty of speed. We've already loose schooled him over poles and he's a natural", Colm Murphy
We bought this lovely individual for €25k at the Tattersalls Derby sale in June 2012. He's a brother to Irish Grand National winner Niche Market and multiple winner Beckett Rock. He's done all the basics and is now on a break and will return to training in July 2013.

"This fella is a big baby and it was good to get him onto the track before we gave him a break. We will improve plenty for that and you will see a different horse next season", Colm Murphy
In July 2011 we purchased a smashing son of leading sire Presenting out of and unraced mare wih plenty of winners further back in the pedigree. Pictured right, he cost the Winning Ways Solar syndicate €20,000 and is a half-brother to a listed dual bumper winner. He made his debut in June 2012 at Killarney and finished just behind the principals on his first attempt on grass.
Update April 2013 - We've been frustrated with the wet ground and he should be on the track as soon as it dries out.
Brave Inca ==> CHAMPION HURDLER
(1998 Good Thyne – Wigwam Mam)
“Like Muhammad Ali said, you've got to have the will and the skill and the desire and this fellow's got it all”, Tony McCoy
Brave Inca has provided Winning Ways Syndicate Manager Oran Crean with many thrills over the last seven years. Bought by Colm Murphy on behalf of the Dublin based Crean and O’Tierney families for €18,000 at the Goffs Land Rover sales in June 2001, Brave Inca was the Novices syndicate’s first foray into racehorse ownership.
Synonymous with Cheltenham, Brave Inca showed his battling qualities on many occasions, winning 15 of his 33 races including ten grade ones. These include two Irish Champion Hurdles, the English Champion Hurdle, Punchestown's Champion Hurdle, Hattons Grace Hurdle and the Letheby and Christopher Supreme Novice Hurdle as well as being placed in two more English Champion Hurdles.
Now retired in Colm's yard, Brave Inca has been retrained and has won the "Racehorses to Riding Horses" class at the RDS in 2009 & 2011!! He regularly leads work on the gallops and is part of the team in Killena.

Raise The Beat ==> DUAL WINNER
(2005 Beat All – Autumn Leaf)
On 11 June 2008, the Winning Ways Enigma syndicate acquired this pacey individual for €22,000. A great mover, his sire was placed in the 1999 Epsom Derby while his dam is a lightly raced full sister to high class chaser Billygoat Gruff and has already produced a dual winner in Star Beat, also by Beat All.
Raise The Beat won his first bumper in May 2010 and followed up in a winners bumper in October 2010. After a wet winter, he was aimed at the Cheltenham Champion Bumper but suffered an injury in the race and was brought home in his own time.
Update April 2013 - A winner at Dundalk in March. He will mix it between flat and jumps over the Summers
