CLONMEL RESULTS

It was certainly three amazing days at Powerstown Park........First of all I would like to thank the team who put this show together........if its posssible it just gets better ever year.   There was certainly a huge crowd ...........be interesting to see the figures, but from where I was it looked a bumper show.


There was plenty of drama and heartache for some......and that is what makes the wins so special

Well done to all the winners...


Heres a few shots of final day..........im ploughing my way through the 5000 photos that I took   and the more interesting ones will be onshow on my Smugmug site .....some now and the rest over the next few days

BOYLESPORTS DERBY

It was a Derby full of Drama and hard luck stories for Fav backers...........while fate was sorting out some the little white and black tracker was picking off his oponents one by one. There was a huge cheer of relief from connections when he raised the flag against Coshair Magic in a great course.

What a super pup.....you know the storey by now....18 months old........qualified 3 weeks ago after running udefeated in a Cup! then a Trail Stake.....Tough as teak! a true Champion....well done

Heres a link to his pedigree....CLICK HERE............with  Staplers Jo......Im Slippy......Daleys Gold.......and Debbycott Lad in his damline its not hard to see where the pace came from

Following on from last year I think this was a top quality Oaks.........any of the final day bitches could have taken the crown !
