Brendan Browne’s Glasheen Adios had the distinction of becoming the first Clare winner of 2021 at the Galway track.

It was in race two where all six runners were away on terms for this S8 graded sprint contest with Ringroe Rascal first to break rank on the wide outside but as they settled down on the run towards the opening bend the Brendan Browne of Kilkee owned Glasheen Adios quickly went through the gears to take command of the contest. Rounding the opening bend Glasheen Adios led Flyers Wildfire by three lengths and although the latter closed with every stride Glasheen Adios prevailed by a length at the line in 19.71.

The Browne family were back in the winners enclosure after race four, this time it was the turn of the Michael Browne owned Burnpark Lola who was very smartly into her stride when racing towards the opening bend. The daughter of Confident Rankin and Burnpark Diva led Burgoyne, the leaders advantage was four lengths and although Burgoyne Barello tried hard Burnpark Lola had two lengths to spare rounding the opening bend with Rosshill Ranger in third place. Racing past halfway Lola was still three lengths to the good at the line in 29.51.

All six runners were lined across the track in race nine approaching the opening bend in the A6 graded contest and with plenty of crowding Sports Legend just about led but turning down the back straight Totos Sprite and Flyers Job emerged at the head of affairs. Approaching the penultimate bend the Colm Fitzgerald and Cathal Meaney of Kilrush owned Flyers Job(Secreto-Convey Eve) Flyers Job took command of the contest and gradually drawing clear Flyers Job had six lengths to spare over Totos Sprite at the line in 29.80.

The best performance of the night though came from the John Collins and Albert Long owned Brickhill Lulu who took the A4 graded eleventh contest by three and three quarter lengths from Rosshill Duke in 29.20. The winner was smartly into stride on the wide outside to lead from Roy Rovers, Rosshill Duke and Fish Fingers at the opening bend. Racing towards halfway Brickhill Lulu led by over three lengths as Rosshill Duke moved a clear second but the winner was home and hosed turning for home as she scored in great style.

The final meeting of 2020 at Galway Greyhound Stadium had the final of the Tom Qualter Unraced 525 Yards Stake sponsored by Seamus Leahy as the feature event and it provided a great result for the Guilfoyle Kennels and the Good News-Tullovin Kim litter with Odhrans Princess and Princess Fiadh dominating the finish.

In the opening A7 graded contest Sues Newhall and Balroebuck Game were both smartly into stride but as they approached the opening bend the Johnny Burke of Tubber owned Sues Newhall opened up a two length advantage over her rival. Racing down the back Sues Newhall extended her advantage to over four lengths as she set sail for home and the daughter of Newhall Missile & Sues Music stayed on powerfully to defeat Balroebuck Game by three and a half lengths in 29.41.
