There was more quality racing from Shelbourne on Saturday evening where the highlight of the evening was the Ladbrokes Easter Cup Quarter Finals. We had 4 safely move into the next round, which included two Quarter Final winners in emphatic fashion.
Ballydoyle Honey was sensational in her heat as she led early into the bend, cruising along the far side and round the final turns she pulled further clear to beat a top class field by 8 lengths in a brilliant 29.34. The final heat saw Sidarian Vega, in great form at present, slowly away at trap rise. Showing customary early pace to the bend and round the first turn he took up the running out the second bend. Leading along the far side and round the final bend, kennel mate, Skywalker Rory was closing with every stride but the line came in time for Vega who stopped the clock in 29.69.
Also safely into next week’s Semi Final is Notorious Ben who was second in Heat 2.
