Doyle also bred The Alchemyst, who provided Pat Collins with his 100th career success and Madera Express from his Wicklow base who won impressively at Ballinaboola for handler Peter Fahey at Ballinaboola in early February. Also owned by Doyle, the daughter of Milan went onto win a mares’ bumper at Fairyhouse in April.
