Successful day of racing at Finn Valley


Successful day of racing at Finn Valley

Killygordon staged the third Horse and Pony Club race meeting of the season on Sunday and it was another good day for 13-year-old Dylan Browne McMonagle who had three winners.

Dylan’s successes came on board Waratah (in the 148cms), the Rathmullan-owned Messi (153cms) and Athea Jade (1 1/4 Mile Open).

Among the other local wins were recorded by Jack Daniels (trained in Ramelton) who bounced back to form to win the 2 mile open in a pulsating finishing, beating Let’s Go.

The Ard na Glass team, the Baird family, also had a fruitful afternoon with a nice double - Don’t Know in the 1 1/2 Mile Open and Angel Eyes in the 1 Mile Open.

It was another successful day of racing with a good crowd in attendance at Russell’s Farm.

There’s no racing racing this weekend - the next event will be in the first week in July. More details to follow.
