Riverside Oscar was crowned 2016 Gain Dog Food Select 525 Stakes Champion at Waterford as he produced a superb performance to take the Final.

Out-trapping kennel mate and hot favourite, Skywalker Manner, he paced up well to the bend. Holding his position into the turn he drove the bend hard allowing him to grab the lead from the early paced Quietly. Showing a huge turn of foot round the second turn he built an unassailable lead along the far side. Coming home in 28.42 he crossed the line 6 lengths in front.

He takes home the brilliant prize of €13,000 for owner Larry O’Rourke.
