Today’s Easter Saturday point-to-point fixture at Loughanmore in East Antrim produced two Wexford handled winners.
Jenny Walsh, owner, and handler and rider Benny Walsh, Murrintown, won the four-year-old mares’ maiden race by seven lengths with Star of Hoiho, who is now on her way to the sales.
Ellen Doyle saddled the Baltimore Stables Syndicate’s newcomer I Play County for division two of the four-year-old geldings maiden which ended with a two lengths success under Brian Dunleavy.
This was Ellen’s 11th winner of the year, so she is enjoying her most successful season so far in five years of holding the licence.
