Clonbrien Swift dipped inside the long standing Clonmel 550 track record on Sunday evening, on his way to claiming the Spring A1/A2 550 Stake Final.

Breaking smartly, he took control of the contest early on, galloping well throughout, he came home eight lengths in front of the nearest rival in 29.59. Owned by Larry O’Rourke, he completes a dominant Semi Final and Final success.

He shaves a single spot of the old track record, which had stood for 6 years and also previously set by a former kennel runner, Cabra Buck.
