By Dan Walsh

Today’s point-to-point action at Oldtown, Co. Meath featured winners for Wexford riders and handlers and rider James Walsh, Preban, Tinahely, recorded his 70th career point-to-point win in the maiden race for five- and six-year-old geldings.

JAMES WALSH rode his 70th point-to-point winner today.

Walsh was aboard Grand Albert for local owner/handler Virginia Considine from Rathmolyon and the winning margin was a comfortable twelve lengths.

Rob James, who is out of the saddle through injury, was successful wearing his handler’s hat in the maiden race for four-year-olds when Oak Grove prevailed by a neck with Finian Maguire in the saddle.

Newcomer Dairylane Daisy was a winner for John C. Byrne from Kilmore in the five- and six-year-old mares’ maiden race. Barry Stone, Cleariestown, was in the saddle and the winning margin was one length.

Barry O’Neill is one winner away from the half century for the season following a four lengths success on Bold Enough for David Christie in the Open Race.
