Newinn Taylor landed the feature race on last night’s Limerick card, the Final of the €1,100 to the winner Selachii Legal Open 525, in the process extending his unbeaten career start to eight wins in eight starts.

A hot favourite to maintain his unbeaten run, the exciting youngster was foot perfect from traps and soon into full stride. Showing superb early dash he established an early three length lead into the opening turn. Cruising effortlessly along the back straight he continued to extend his lead, hitting the third turn some nine to ten lengths clear. Despite the chasing pack closing slightly on the run in, Taylor held a six and a half length advantage at the finish line. Recording a brilliant 28.37 on an evening with weather anything but perfect. Following the victory he now claims a free entry into the 2020 Con & Annie Kirby Memorial due to start later this month.
