RACING | O’Brien’s fancy records comfortable win at Dundalk Stadium

Action from Dundalk Stadium

Asking was the most fancied of three Aidan O’Brien runners in the Dundalk Stadium — Light Up Your Night Maiden on Friday night and the market was right.

Always travelling nicely for Aidan O’Brien, the 6–4 favourite took up the running over a furlong out and ran on well to beat Sir Danilo by a length, with O’Brien’s newcomer Music Box staying on takingly for third, and his other runner Pennsylvania fifth.

Donnacha O’Brien was aboard The Anvil, who made it a Dundalk double for Aidan in the Dundalk Stadium Business Club Maiden.

Last year’s Royal Lodge runner-up outclassed his rivals in the closing stages to justify his 3–10 starting price.

The speedily-bred Fille Du Septembre just about lived up to her billing when landing the spoils in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden.

Sent off the 13–8 favourite, Dermot Weld’s daughter of Choisir appeared to be taken off her feet early on, but regained an even keel under Pat Smullen before getting the better of Sirici and Semmerseat Mist in a three-way dive at the line.

Split The Atom produced a tremendous late kick to mow down the pacesetting Tribal Path and land the Race And Stay At Crowne Plaza Dundalk Handicap. Tribal Path looked to have seen off all rivals from the front, but Wayne Lordan found an extra gear on the outside aboard David Marnane’s 9–2 chance and he ran on well to score by three-quarters of a length.

Swish defied top weight to run out a ready winner of the Good Friday Greyhound Racing At Dundalk Stadium Median Auction Race.

Kevin Manning was sat much quieter than his rivals as the quartet of runners made a line two furlongs out, and one crack of the whip was enough for Johnny Feane’s 11–10 favourite to pull away from Roman Wells.

Manning made it a double on the day when guiding Elusive Approach (4–1) to victory in the Make Your Good Friday Great At Dundalk Handicap for Jim Bolger.
