Tank takes it in tight finish
There was a mighty turn-out for the annual Enniscorthy Credit Union night at Enniscorthy Dog Track, and a great night's racing was enjoyed by all with several finals featured.
The Credit Union A3 final with a €1,250 first prize saw a cracking finish as hot favourite Sound Boy led early and was cruising along until the home straight.
Monamolin Tank was coming home strongly at this stage and they flashed over the line together five lengths clear of the third runner. The verdict went to Monamolin Tank by a short head in a good time of 28.77, a career best.
The Credit Union Quick Result A5/6 stake with €1,100 to the winner saw a nice performance from trap three runner Our Little Dolly who led from trap rise to score by six lengths from the somewhat unlucky Airdown Rena. Rena was badly drawn in six and it did make the difference on the night.
There was a good crowd in attendance on Thursday night also, a fundraiser for Ballyroebuck National School, and it proved a very good night for local owner/trainer Dermot Flynn when recording a fine double.
His Tagalong Hylander raced to a clear four lengths win in race five, and then his big strong-running Tagalong Hawkeye led in race nine over the 600-yard trip to hold off the challenges of Town Belle and Fleeting Queen who finished strongly, winning his fourth race in a time of 33.34.
