Over the coming weeks, we will be adding videos to some of the old point-to-point fixtures that we have on file. The next year we are adding videos from is the 2004 season.
The Mid Antrim Hunt point-to-point fixture at Maralin is the next meeting to be added to the archive section from 2004.
Below is a re-cap of what happened on the day.
The opening race at Maralin, the four and five-year-old maiden saw Galero and Leo Gracey come home in front by half a length. Kupka and Colin Motherway were very lucky not to part company at the final fence, it was a great recovery by the Cork rider.
Sunstart Lad and JD Moore took the confined hunt winners of two race in good style when running out a four length victory over Influential.
John Thomas McNamara was in the winners enclosure when landing the winners of two in good fashion aboard River Shamrock.
Roadworthy and Stephen Magee were first past the post in the six-year-old and upwards mares maiden but the race was subsequently awarded to Madame Fifi and Simon McGonagle as Roadworthy was found to have a prohibited substance and was disqualified.
Derek O’Connor registered a double on the afternoon, his first winner of the day came courtesy of Finoel in the open lightweight.
O’Connor recorded his second winner of the afternoon when winning the concluding six-year-old and upwards maiden aboard Letsmoveon.
