Saturday saw us over at Limerick where we were represented in the Con & Annie Kirby Memorial Stake, as well as The Treaty Cup.
Skywalker Archie qualified for next week’s Treaty Cup Final as he finished third in his Semi Final, won in a track record time by Quietly. He was slowly into stride but soon got going to secure a qualifying spot. He has drawn 6 in next week’s red hot final affair.
Clares Rocket has taken to Limerick, like the proverbial duck to water, in the opening two rounds and Saturday was no exception. He rode a slight bump and stumble on the run up before railing the opening bends, powering away out the second turn the race was soon over as a contest as he went clear along the far side. Staying on strong he came home 7 lengths to the good in a fine 28.32. Riverside Oscar claimed third spot and qualifies for next week’s Semi Finals.
