AULTON SUPER and Inishodriscol excelled in Galway to take top billing in the weekend’s racing at Galway Greyhound Stadium.

By Michael Maher

A pair of A3 graded contests over 525 and 550 yards shared top billing on Friday night’s card at Galway Greyhound Stadium. As the traps rose for race six, the A3 graded 550 Aulton Super was away well along the inner and the Pat Hogan of Ennis owned runner led from Honkwhenyourhome and Rememberthebird as they approached the opening turn. Tracking well the Vincent McKenna trained Aulton Super (Superior Product-Portumna West) led by almost two lengths at halfway and as the chasers hard Aulton Super was still travelling strongly out front and although Hoinkwhenyourhome tried to close Aulton Super stayed on well to score by two lengths at the line in 30.59.

In the second of the A3s, the Mary Grace of Shannon owned Inishodriscol took his career stats to five wins from seven starts as he made all the running to defeat Bobtailbuttercup by a length and a half in 29.54. The Stephen Murray of Sixmilebridge trained winner and Lexis Cleo were both away smartly with the winner showing the best pace to take a two length advantage rounding the opening bend. Racing down the back Inishodriscol really lengthened his stride as Bobtailbuttercup gave chase out wide and although the latter did close in the straight Inishodriscol was always in command .

In the concluding S8 graded contest, Bumblebee Fergus and Killawalla King came away well but on the run towards the opening bend the Sean Meade of Miltown Malbay owned Paradise Andorra powered through along the rails to assume command of the contest. Tracking fairly well the daughter of Droopys Sydney and Paradise Abbey extended her advantage to over three lengths entering the home straight and drawing further clear on the line she had five lengths to spare over Caislean Bambi in 19.45.

The A0 graded sixth contest over 525 yards was the feature event in Saturday night’s card at Galway Greyhound Stadium and as the traps rose Bumblebee Seamus was just about best away ahead of My Mucker and Coolemount Boss and the trio were lined across the track racing towards the opening bend. At the bend Coolemount Boss drifted slightly off the inner and the concertina effect saw the striped jacketed Dynamic Diva run right round her rivals to assume command of the contest entering the back straight. Striding out well past the halfway mark Dynamic Diva led by two lengths as Coolemount Boss went in pursuit. Rounding the home bend the leader ran quite wide but the Kieran and Bridget Nugent of Ballyea owned Dynamic Diva (Ballymac Best-Dynamic Cool Sky) just had enough in hand to prevail by a neck from Coolmount Boss at the line in 29.19.

Last Thursday night at the Limerick Track from the 12 races on the card, six proved fruitful for Clare owners. Ryan’s Lemon was first up for Joe Collins from Parteen with a 29.50 victory, this was career win number four for this son of Droopys Cain and Lemon Abigail.

Inislosky Romeo is a model of consistency for Mary Crotty and William Casey from O’Briensbridge and on this occasion this son of Romeo Recruit and Inislosky Swift recorded career win number nineteen with a 29.96 effort.

Snuggie Bunty recorded his fourth career win for Myles Cummins and Breda Casey from Newmarket-on-Fergus, a son of Paddys Magic and Miles Girl he led from trap to line to stop the clock in 29.23.

Young Dylan O’Donoghue from Fanore was in the winner’s enclosure with his charge, John Boy Dylan, trained by Donal Cooney –and a son of Droopys Sydney and Ballistic Nina, he finished strongly to claim the honours in 29.37.

Glengar Manus came up trumps for Clarecastle’s Pakie Healy and the Manus Syndicate to record the fastest run of the evening in 29.18, this son of Ballymac Best and Droopys Mazda recorded his eight career success. In the finale of the evening, Noel Moroney from Mullagh had Tiermana Den in fine fettle, this son of Magical Bale and Cloneyogan Beauty recorded his first career win in 29.39.
