Plans fluid for sales ace Seanie

Seanie might have one more run this season after scooping a huge pot at Fairyhouse on Saturday.

David Marnane's youngster sprang a 40-1 surprise in the Tattersalls Ireland Super Auction Sale Stakes to land £63,000 for connections.

"We've always held him in high regard and he obviously improved a lot off his first run at Tipperary. He'd shown plenty at home without us having done very much with him and we always thought he'd make into a lovely three-year-old," said the trainer.

"It was good he got into the race on Saturday and good that he won it. He had a bad draw and a lot of things were against us, but he was still the best horse on the day and we're delighted with him.

"He's come out of the race great so far. We're going to sit down next week and figure out what we are going to do with him. I haven't any definite plans. We might put him away for the year or he might have one more run.

"Maybe just for experience, we might like to see him out one more time."
