Two point-to-point meetings today at Clonmel at and Carrigarostig, Co. Cork, and only two Wexford successes, both at the Cork venue, where the going conditions were ‘heavy’.
Calli Black, a faller on her only previous outing, made amends with a front running display and a four lengths victory for Caitriona and Michael Goff, Clodaw, Ferns, with five-pound claimer Dan Nevin up, in the maiden race for five-year-old mares. Runner-up was Femme Magnifique from the Matthew Flynn O’Connor stables at Ballycrystal.
Barry O’Neill and Colin Bowe had a winner with first timer Barrabooka for owner Dermot O’Byrne who had one and a half lengths to spare in the maiden race for five-year-old geldings. Milan AC for the Baltimore Stables and Ellen Doyle at Coolgarrow Lane, Enniscorthy, was runner-up.
Next Sunday’s point-to-point takes place at Ballycrystal, Kiltealy, the first race is at 12.30pm, and good racing is anticipated.
