CASHEL FINAL DAY

Yet another enjoyable days coursing..........Is it my imagination or are the hares better this year!


Judge Liam Kelly.........

MORRISSEY ALL AGE CUP

This was a very close run Cup............id tend to think that a bit of soft ground 3/4 of the way up the track had a effect on a couple of courses ....including the Final of this Cup.
Runner up Shoestown Blue had just taken up the lead when he met this patch and lost his action only for Donard King to surge ahead again


The Final....Donard King just up

Donard King is by Why Tanard moon out of Long Acre bred by the Doyles from Freshford and won a trial stake at  Ballymena last year.
