Update: Donegal jockey just misses out in the big race of the day at Naas

Oisin Orr

Donegal’s Oisin Orr just missed out on victory in the big race of the day at Naas, the Lodge Park Stud Irish EBF Park Express Stakes (Fillies' And Mares' Group 3).

The young Donegal rider finished second on Parent’s Prayer, a 5/1 shot, behind the 12/1 winner Epona Plays with Sziget back in third.

Meanwhile, Luke McAteer earned his second win of the flat racing season in the final race of the evening as he was on board the 5/1 shot Wonder Elzaam for trainer Niall Egan in a seven furlong contest in heavy conditions.

McAteer finished just a neck ahead of fellow Donegal jockey Dylan Browne McMonagle who finished in second - having led at one stage - on the 15/2 Michael Mulvaney trained Silver Service.
