Wexford riders Luke Murphy, who recorded his 70th career winner, and Bertie Finn were amongst the winners at yesterday’s (Saturday) point-to-point at Moira, Co. Down.
Inch, Gorey rider Luke Murphy won the maiden race for four-year-olds on newcomer El Granjero for Meath owner/handler Peter Flood. It was a tight finish – a head verdict – with another newcomer Feeling Festive in the colours of the Cullen House Syndicate and Matthew Flynn O’Connor, Ballycrystal, with Brian Lawless in the saddle securing the runner-up spot.
Bertie Finn, Oulart, joined forces with David Christie and enjoyed a three lengths success on Bold Enough in the Open Race. Seventh success of the season for Finn.
