O'Brien family affair at Wexford
29 Aug 2015 18:06
The O'Brien family dominated proceedings at Wexford on Saturday with trainer Aidan saddling three winners, with his son and two daughters taking the mounts.
-
Joseph O'Brien got the ball rolling as Los Barbados (9-4 F) landed the Follow Wexford Racecourse On Facebook Maiden while his sister Ana then steered Udogo (9-2) to victory in the first division of the Wexford Handicap.
-
Sarah O'Brien then teamed up with Kalopsia (13-8) to win the closing Enniscorthy Mares INH Flat Race meaning brother Donnacha was the only sibling not to have a winner after he had been narrowly denied aboard Cocoon by Fran Berry on Manny Owens in the Children's Day At Bettyville Handicap.
-
Joseph O'Brien said: "It was a bit of sickener for Donnacha to be the only one of us not to have a winner. "We will pay for dinner for him on the way home to make it fair!
-
"The horses are running well and long may it last.
-
"It's brilliant that all of us are riding. We all walked the track before racing and everyone knows what they are doing and we all do our best."
