Weekend wins on the greyhound track were notched for Kilrush, Ennistymon and Miltown Malbay owners.

There was just the one nights racing this week at Galway Greyhound Station due to Friday nights rugby game.

In race two the Red Jacketed Killawalla Tiger was very smartly into stride in this S9 graded affair and racing towards the opening bend he was closely attended to by the Cathal Meaney of Kilrush owned Ray Road on his outside with Peteles Duchess also close up on the wide outside. Rounding the opening bend Ray Road joined issue with Killawalla Tiger and the pair turned for home as one. On the run for the judge Ray Road was always holding the upper hand as he prevailed by a length and a half in 19.58.

The Tommy Flanagan of Ennistymon owned Dromoher Alice (Droopys Buick-Flandys Hawkeye) recorded her maiden success in race seven which was an A6 graded contest leading at the opening bend on her way to a three length success over Saltoftheearth in 29.42. Having been baulked early on last one the winner enjoyed a clear run to the opening bend as Saltoftheearth and Decisive Pablo also showed pace to the turn. Railing well at the opening bend Dromoher Alice took two lengths out of her rivals turning down the back as Rocket Robert and Saltoftheearth gave chase but that chase was all in vain as Dromoher Alice set sail for home on her way to a decisive success.

In the chief supporting contest was the A3 graded eleventh contest over 550 yards in which Fish Fingers broke smartly in the centre off the track but on the long run towards the opening bend the Sean Meade of Miltown Malbay owned Paradise Asia showed just enough pace to lead along the inner at the turns Astro Abby moved second ahead of Fish Fingers entering the back straight. Setting sail for home passing the halfway mark Paradise Asia(Droopys Nidge-Alexandra) was home for all many rounding the home bend as she proved three lengths too good for Astro Abby in 30.09.
