Ex­cit­ing rac­ing on cards at En­nis­cor­thy track GREY­HOUND RAC­ING

New Ross Standard - - SPORT -

THERE IS some crack­ing rac­ing com­ing up over the next few weeks at En­nis­cor­thy Grey­hound Track as the En­nis­cor­thy Leger is due to start on Thurs­day night.

Then on Mon­day night comes the big one, the start of the Red Mills Fu­ture Cham­pion Un­raced Stake.

Given all of the pre­vi­ous cham­pi­ons to come out of this stake, a big at­ten­dance is ex­pected in an­tic­i­pa­tion of see­ing an­other new star or stars to emerge.

The Dublin Coach Ju­ve­nile Derby quar­ter-fi­nals were run at Shel­bourne Park on Fri­day, and while Cushie Jet was elim­i­nated the week be­fore, the En­nis­cor­thy in­ter­est now lies with Michael Ke­hoe’s Lib­erty Gale (Laughil Blake/ Lo­her Baby).

Lib­erty made the most of an ideal draw in trap one in the open­ing heat to lead around the turn in what turned out to be a messy con­test. The Pa­trick Roban-trained grey­hound eased off the fence but they con­tin­ued to bat­tle for the lead into the turn.

At this point some­thing had to give, and Lib­erty Gale forced her way into the clear, hold­ing on by a half length in 28.78.

The vic­tor will now line up in the semi-fi­nal this week go­ing from the tricky trap five draw and will need a fast break.
