Michael Goff enjoys double success

By Dan Walsh

Michael Goff travelled from his base at Clondaw, Ferns, to today’s point-to-point races at Dromahane and teaming up with Waterford-born rider Michael Sweeney he was successful twice at the Cork track.

MICHAEL GOFF… double point-to-point success in Cork today.

First up was newcomer Fortunate Man who scored by two lengths in the maiden race for four-year-old geldings and half an hour later claimed the five-year-old maiden race with Double Digits by one length. Both ran in the colours of Caitriona Goff.

Another Wexford winner at Dromahane was newcomer Bellas Bridge, by three-parts of a length under Sean Staples, for the Blackhall Stables Partnership and Paul Pierce, Killurin, in the maiden race for four-year-old mares.

There was also point-to-point action in Louth today and a pair of Wexford winners. Colin Bowe saddled up newcomer Tareze who came home one and a half lengths to the good under Bertie Finn in the mares’ four-year-old maiden race. This was the 10th career winner for Bertie Finn from Oulart.

Gorey hotel owner Patrick Redmond tasted success at the Louth fixture when Toss Of A Coin triumphed by nine lengths in the maiden race for five year old geldings. The son of Flemensfirth, Toss Of A Coin, who is for sale, was a 35th career winner for rider James Kenny and is handled by his father, Liam Kenny at Craanford, Gorey.
