What a weekend for the kennels it turned out to be, one that will live long in our memories and that of connections as we triumphed in 3 major races of the racing calendar!

Tralee – Boylesports Race Of Champions

It started in wonderful fashion at Tralee where Rural Hawaii battled hard for victory in the Boylesports Race Of Champions. He deserved a big race success in our eyes and he produced the goods om the night to be a deserving champion.

Shelbourne Park – Irish Oaks Consolation Final

Moving onto Shelbourne on Saturday and it really was a fairytale evening. First up, following her elimination from the Semi Final stages last week, Rising Twirl lined up in the Oaks Consolation Final. She made amends for her poor start last week but breaking fast and leading into the opening turn. With the hot favorite turning second all eyes were on her to see if she could last home. She came home a neck in front to take the honors!

Shelbourne Park – Irish Oaks Final

Onto the feature race of the evening and we had 2 lining up in the prestigious Sporting Press Irish Oaks Final, the hot favourite Ballydoyle Honey in Trap 1 and litter sister, Hovex Princess in Trap 5. It turned out to be a battle between kennel mates as they came home to record an amazing 1-2 for the kennels, with Ballydoyle Honey just edging out Hovex Princess in a real thriller!
