We had 4 runners safely qualify for the next round of the Healthcare & Transport Services Oaks on Saturday at Shelbourne Park.

Rural Maui and Tolpuddle Mist qualified in 2nd and 3rd spot, respectively, in the opening heat when chasing home a good winner in Yahoo Perlena. Heat 2 was a similar story with Ballydoyle Honey running a big race behind a good Droopys Streak. This was the fasted of the opening heats. Skywalker Pearl (video below) opened her account for the kennel in emphatic fashion when taking Heat 4 of the Healthcare and Transport Services Puppy Oaks. Recording a blistering 1.91 sectional she was never under pressure as she raced to a four and half length victory.

The draw for the next round has seen 2 of our runners drawn together. All the girls go to traps in good form and we’ll be hoping for a top 3 finish for each of them to see them line up at the Semi Final stage.
