Two Wexford winners at today’s point-to-point races at Loughanmorein East Antrim and both came in the maiden race for five-year-old geldings which was run in two divisions.
Division one was won by first timer Yeah Man for Cormac Doyle who had a length to spare with Jack Hendrick in the saddle. Division two was a victory for Sound And Fury for Colin Bowe and Barry O’Neill by four lengths. This brings champion handler Bowe onto the 30-winner mark for the current season.
Racing also took place at Killelagh last Wednesday and two Wexford winners recorded at the Cork track.
Rob James won the maiden race for four-year-old mares on Love At Sea by three lengths for Donnchadh Doyle and the Monbeg Syndicate.
Jack Hendrick maintained his good form winning on Killybegs Junior for George Murphy and Robert Tector, Coolbawn, Rathnure, in the Winners of One. The distance was ‘a neck’ and Killybegs Junior will be turning out at Monksgrange next Sunday, April 24th, when the second fixture of the Spring takes place under the auspices of Bree Hunt.
