Sempione Park carried the Milestone Bloodstock Ltd colours to a narrow success – just a head in it – to give Colin Bowe and Barry O’Neill a winner in the maiden race for five-year-old geldings at Stonehall, Askeaton, Co. Limerick today (Saturday).
The Kiltealy-based champions missed out on a double in the mares’ maiden race for four-year olds when She’s So Lovely was beaten two and a half lengths by The Real Jet, trained at Ballindaggin by Cormac Doyle, whose horses are running very well in recent weeks and he is clocking up the winners. Trained six winners this season.
The Real Jet was third at Borris House on her first run for the Monbeg Farm Racing Partnership and was another victory for Mayglass rider Jack Hendrick, who is a second cousin of leading amateur jockey Jamie Codd and was enjoying his 12th winner of his career – six of them this season.
