Nice double for Doyle
Gorey owner Thomas Doyle and Enniscorthy trainer Johnny Kavanagh enjoyed a nice double on Thursday in the first round of the Droopys Stud A3 575.
Mango Lad was first up in heat two and he scored a comfortable two and a half length win, recording 31.84, before full brother Mango Mars recorded his sixth race win when taking heat four in a slightly faster time of 31.82.
Race nine, an A2, saw the Eugene Dempsey-owned Skyview Blue score his 18th race win when recording 29.15.
Ballymitty owner Martin Stafford had a very good win in race three when his Running Sweet scored his fifth career success when recording a good 31.66 for the 575 distance.
The semi-finals of the Droopys Stud 575 will feature this Thursday night.
There is an exciting week ahead for Piercestown owner Thomas Coleman as his bitch, Piercestown Lucy, qualified for the bitch classic final, the Sporting Press Irish Oaks, next Saturday night at Shelbourne Park.
Her trainer, 'Shanks' Whelan, will no doubt have her in tip-top shape to make a bold bid for classic glory.
The brilliant Ballydole Honey will start a red hot favourite but as in all finals it's all on the night as to who will take the honours.
