MADELEINE TYLICKI said First To Boogie's success at Punchestown on Sunday was "special" as the trainer claimed her first win just weeks after brother Freddy was paralysed from the chest down in a fall.

Jockey Davy Russell was aboard First To Boogie and brought the 6-4 favourite home in front in the 2m6f handicap hurdle to provide Tylicki with her maiden success during a testing time for her family.

"It's a special winner in a difficult time," Tylicki told At The Races. "This will have put a smile on my brother's face. It's a special day."

Freddy Tylicki has been in hospital in London since suffering a T7 paralysis in a fall when riding on the Flat at Kempton at the end of last month.

Tylicki's hailed her brother's strength and attitude as he readjusts to life after the fall and thanked people for their support, which included over £300,000 in donations to the rider.

She said: "We're very grateful for all the support and messages for Freddy. It's been very uplifting for him. It's a tough time but he's a very determined and tough young man. I am absolutely confident that he will fight through this."
