Popular Wexford rider Harley Dunne achieved his 100th career point-to-point victory today at the Tattersalls races in Meath today.
Denis Murphy, Ballyboy Stables, The Ballagh, saddled first timer Working Away in the mares’ maiden race for four-year-olds at the Meath and Tara Foxhounds point-to-point at Tattersalls today and it finished in a two and a half lengths success in the hands of Harley Dunne.
Michael Murphy and Darragh Higgins, handler and rider, respectively, from the Redbridge Stables, Duncormick, who were successful with Ask Anything at Loughbrickland yesterday (Saturday) kept their good form intact and scored with Law Of Supply, by half a length, in the maiden race for four-year-old geldings.
Champion Barry O’Neill teamed up with Gordon Elliott to win the maiden race for five-year=old geldings with newcomer Wearelongterm. It was O’Neill’s 10th success of the new season.
There was also a point-to-point in Kinsale, not sure if many Wexford raiders went there, but no Wexford success is reported from the popular Cork venue.
