Today’s point-to-point at Curraghmore, Co. Waterford, was relatively quiet for Wexford raiders by their own standards, however, the leading yards of Colin Bowe and Donnchadh Doyle continued winning form.
First timer Magic Daze is destined for the sales ring after a one and a half-length victory in the first division of the four-year-old mares’ maiden race for Colin Bowe and Barry O’Neill.
O’Neill went on to make it a riding double when he partnered Dunbar for Eoin Doyle, Mooncoin, to a two and a half lengths victory in the ‘older maidens’ race. This was O’Neill’s 25th winner of the season.
Gentlemansgame with Rob James up had five lengths to spare in the maiden race for four-year-old geldings. Another success for the Monbeg Syndicate and 10th winner of the season for handler Donnchadh Doyle.
Rob James added a second winner for the afternoon on Some Man, by 10 lengths, for Fermanagh handler David Christie.
