Wexford rider James Kenny enjoyed a successful day at Ballingarry on Sunday when riding a double. The first of his successes came aboard Ticket To L A in the Tattersalls Ireland four-year-old mares’ maiden for Colin Bowe who also handled the runner up Gallopongray.

The winning Westerner mare got off the mark at the third time of asking here when recording a comprehensive 10-length victory over her stablemate in the Milestone Racing Partnership colours. Winning Kiltealy handler, Coling Bowe said: “This is a nice mare who appreciated a bit of better ground today.
James (Kenny) gave her a great ride, we might go for a summer bumper with her now before heading to the sales.”

James Kenny brought up his double in the Toohey Agri and E Murphy and Sons geldings’ winner of won contest this time riding for his father Liam Kenny.

The success came aboard the consistent Ya Boy Ya who was previously a winner at Tyrella in March. Having battled gamely in the closing stages of the race, the Sans Frontieres gelding fended off the challenge of the eventual runner up Saint Benedict by one-and-a-half lengths in the end.

The winning handler, Liam Kenny, said: “It’s great for James (Kenny) to have the double, he is really starting to get going there now. This is a nice horse who we always liked at home and we will send him to the sales now.”

Pat Doyle found success in the Clifton Farm five-year-old mares’ maiden with Honey Come Home. Sporting the colours of Mary Doyle, the daughter of Mahler followed up on her promising debut at Loughrea to secure victory by a neck over Sailingtobyzantium.

The victory, secured under Ben Harvey's guidance, was hard won with the runner up putting down a good challenge on the run up to the line.

Honey Come Home's handler Pat Doyle said: “She is a little bit weak so she should improve plenty, she will go out on grass now.

"That will be a great boost for Jim Lanigan who is involved in her as he has been is hospital. We will keep her for breeding. Ben (Harvey) gave her a smashing ride and he is a lovely young fellow.”

Sam Curling continued his fine run of form when scoring in the Foremans mares open for novice riders with Poetic Presence.

The victory marked a red letter day the mares rider, Jack O'Grady, as it was his first winner having had just three rides thus far.

The winning daughter of Presenting won this contest with ease denying the runner up, Save Us Avis by a 12-length margin. The runner up is handled by Peter Flood for owners Dermot and Fergal Mulvhill. 

Winning owner/handler Sam Curling said: “I’m delighted for Jack (O'Grady), it’s great to give him his first winner as he works full time with me in the yard and is a good lad.”

Division one of the Dungar Quality Oats five-year-old geldings’ maiden went to the Marie Harding-trained Cronins Hill. In the colours of Liam Griffen.
The son of Scorpion, who has been second on his last two starts, got off the mark with James Hannon on board.

Running out a one-and-a-half-length winner, the Liam Griffin-owned gelding defeated the Vincent Devereux-trained and James Devereux-owned Get The facts into second place.

The winning handler said: “That was fantastic, it’s been a great day as we are after having a four-year-old finish second below in Kinsale today as well. I will chat to the owners now and we will make a plan, because today was the plan!"

Bintheredonethat took the spoils in the second divide of the Dunagr Quality Oats five-year-old geldings’ maiden for Peter Croke.

The son of Yeats posted a fine front running performance here under the guidance of Brian Lawless. Having previously run well in four-year-old maidens, the Maurice Sheehy-owned winner returned to form here to record a three-length success over the Tom Keating-owned/trained Shouldn't Be Here. 

“He ran well first time out as a four-year-old and his last run up the North the last day was a solid run. We said we would let him roll on in front today. He would be a lovely horse for the track in time but if we get a nice offer for him, we will sell him," said winning handler Peter Croke.

Bunninadden recorded victory in the Alan King Agri Sales seven-year-old maiden for Willie Murphy and Stephen Connor.

The son of Papal Bull ran out a comfortable four-length winner over the Patrick Hassett-trained Mustmeetforapint to continue the handlers fine run of form.

A solid jumping performance here ensured that Bunninadden got off the mark at the eleventh time of asking here in the colours of the handler himself.

Winning handler Willie Murphy said: “It’s been a good season, we originally kept this lad for my wife to ride but she injured her shoulder three weeks ago so Stephen (Connor) stepped in. I think that is his second winner from just four rides for us. I will chat with the owners now and see what they want to do.”
