Sam McCauley Stake decider on Thursday's card
Published 26/05/2015 | 00:00
The final of the Sam McCauley Pharmacy Unraced Stake is the feature event on offer this Thursday with a nice €1,500 first prize.
Somewhat shock results were recorded in the semi-finals last week and it may well prove a tricky final to sort out.
The first semi saw trap three's Big Hawthorn hold on well to beat hot favourite Sion For Blaze in 29.43, but general opinion is that Sion will be fancied to turn the form around from a more favourable trap four draw this week.
The second semi-final saw Whitefort Vic see off his rivals with a nice burst of pace to take him away from the field down the back to hold on well in 29.22, and he would be a popular winner as Whitefort is owned by the late Michael O'Connor who sadly passed away last week.
He will be sadly missed by all in the doggie game.
Michael's Whitefort breeding is well known all around the country and a minute's silence was held on Monday night as a mark of respect. May he rest in peace.
