Three finals on card at Enniscorthy this week
There was a fine crowd in attendance on Thursday night for a very good card, and some excellent runs were recorded.
The semi-finals of the Roban Financial Open Unraced stake were decided, and in the first Ballinclare Earl maintained his unbeaten race record when recording his third straight win. After being led early on, Earl raced around the leaders at the first bend to challenge down the back and take up the running at the third to go on and beat hot favourite Alien Ticker easily in a time of 29.28.
The second semi saw Washpit Buzzer lead and run on well to score in 29.51 from Big Impact who ran on well after a troublesome run to get his spot in the final.
