The kennels scored a brilliant 4 timer in the opening round of the Produce Stakes at Clonmel on Sunday evening with Runaway Rover, Riverside Pat, Sidarian Blitz and Barnhill Turbo all obliging.
Runaway Rover paced up well and was soon in command when hitting the first bend in front. From here he showed great acceleration out the opening turns to forge into a 4-5 length lead. Despite the runner up closing, he always looked comfortable and went on to score by 1.5 lengths in 28.71. Riverside Pat was next up and he showed his great battling qualities by taking his race up at the 3rd bend and powering away to victory. Having followed the earlier leader up the back straight he showed good track craft to pass on the outside at the 3rd bend and go on to score by 4.5 lengths,
Sidarian Blitz was the next of our runners onto the track. He was full of running as he paced up well and was soon in command entering the opening turn. He was in complete control of the race out of the 2nd bend and showed good all round pace to stop the clock in 28.66. Last up was Barnhill Turbo. Similar to Riverside Pat’s run earlier in the evening, he had to be patient to make his run. Keeping in touch with the early leader it was when the gap opened up at the 4th bend that Turbo made his move up the inside to go on and score by half a length.
