Eight ‘points’ wins for Wexford stables

There were point-to-point fixtures at three venues today and it was a good day for Wexford stables who came home with eight victories.

At Borris House, newcomer Tellherthename was a five lengths winner under veteran rider Benny Walsh for Shirley Berry and Johnny Berry, Tomhaggard, in the maiden race for four-year-olds. Runner-up was another newcomer from the Colin Bowe stables in Kiltealy Joyau Allen with Barry O’Neill up. Walsh, from Murrintown, was registering his 120th career point-to-point winner.

BENNY WALSH enjoyed his 120th ‘points’ career winner today.

Colm Murphy who trains at Balinadrummin, Killena, saddled Scorsese in the maiden race for five-year-old geldings and he came home one length to the good under Jimmy O’Rourke, Horetown, Foulksmills.

Newcomer Rose In  The Park obliged for Donnchadh Doyle and James Walsh by a length in the mares maiden race for five-year-olds and upwards.

And also at the Carlow track, One For Dan, owned by Connie Rooney from Ballyduff, trained at Camolin by John Paul Brennan was the winner in the maiden race for six-year-old geldings confined to novice riders. It was a first success for rider James Murray, (17), from Ferns.

Harley Dunne sent newcomer Jack N Jones to Ballycahane, Co. Limerick, to contest the maiden race for four-year-olds and it successfully ended in a six lengths victory under Tiernan Roche Power.

There was more success at West Waterford. Denis Murphy kept up his good strike rate with Queensbury Boy taking the four-year-old maiden race under Joey Dunne. Only one length in it!

Gavin Kinch’s New Order, handled at Craanford by Liam Kenny was the six lengths winner of the maiden race for five- and six-year-old geldings. The handler’s son, Jimmy Kenny took the successful mount.

And the concluding race at Waterford – the five-year—old plus unplaced maiden – proved good for Cormac Doyle who saddled Romeo Magico and with Jack Hendrick in the saddle they proved strongest at the finish with two lengths to spare.
