Orgilgo Bay wins Hurdle in Listowel
16 Sep 2014 18:06
Orgilgo Bay led his rivals a merry dance in the Listowel Races Supporters Club Lartigue Hurdle at Listowel. John McConnell's stable star headed the weights for this competitive handicap but Kevin Sexton was positive on him from the outset and with just Annagh Haven for company turning for home, he stretched clear to pass the post with five lengths in hand at odds of 6-1. Hurricane Ridge (10-1) has got his act together over fences and collected a decent prize in the John F. McGuire Novice Chase. The Jessie Harrington-trained five-year-old, who broke through at Killarney last month, was getting weight from his elders and he was driven out by Robbie Power to hold off the staying-on Bally Longford by two and a quarter lengths. Kanes Pass backed up last month's Roscommon win with a determined triumph in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Handicap. The 6-1 chance was tackling a mile for the first time but got the distance well, outbattling game front-runner Empress Toorah to prevail by half a length. Smuggler's Cove (9-4) took a major step forward from his introduction to land the Jet O'Carroll Memorial EBF Maiden. Only fifth at Roscommon, the Ballydoyle youngster knew much more about was required of him and he saw out the seven furlongs well to beat New Alliance by a length and a quarter. Hassah was another to make it second-time lucky as she ran out an emphatic winner of the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Median Auction Fillies Maiden. Paul Deegan's juvenile showed nothing when pitched into Listed company on her sole previous appearance, but she looked a different animal this time around and bolted up by seven and a half lengths to spring a 20-1 surprise. Chillie Billie (8-1) went into the Brandon Hotel Handicap with just one win from 45 starts but benefited from a fine front-running Ross Coakley ride to double his career tally.
