A small Wexford contingent descended on Ballindenisk, Co. Cork for this afternoon’s point-to-point races but there was a Wexford trained winner as first timer Joe’s Turn took up the running before two fences out and lead the field home in division two of the maiden race for six year olds plus.
Ridden by Harley Dunne, Blackwater, Joe’s Turn was in control from two obstacles out and ran on gamely for a New Year’s victory by three lengths success for Richie Rath whose stables are located at Ballybawn, Screen.
A bay gelding by Jet Away out of Mileshogue Queen, Joe’s Turn is bred and owned by Laurence O’Brien, Oylegate. So a true Wexford victory for the competitive team.
