Today’s point-to-point races at Loughbrickland in Co. Down commenced with a thrilling finish to the maiden race for four-year-olds with two Wexford trained horses fighting out the finish.
Ask Anything from the Redbridge Stables of Michael Murphy at Duncormick with 20 years old Cork rider Darragh Higgins up, took the spoils by ‘a head’ from Sean Doyle’s Covis Island ridden by Rob James.
James had some compensation later in the afternoon when partnering Hello Marie for Donnchadh Doyle to a four lengths victory in the maiden race for mares of five years or older.
Barry O’Neill was amongst the winners too. He partnered Ferns Lock to a 13 lengths success in the Winner of One Race for David Christie.
