Tulla owned Rockalong Aqua was among the winners at Galway Track on Saturday night while Quilty’s David Hogan produced more winners as did Sean Meade of Miltown Malbay.

In the concluding A3 graded contest, the Mike McNamara and James O’Shea owned Rockalong Aqua lasted home by a length form the fast finishing Croaghill Tony in 29.30. The winner a daughter of Secreto & Looster Bets was very smartly into her stride and rounding the opening bend shed led Gunner Robin by two lengths with Croaghill Tony in third place on the wide outside. Out front though Rockalong Aqua was making the best of her way home and although the runner up closed rapidly the line was always coming in time for the winner.

Another promising newcomer was introduced by Miltown Malbay’s Sean Meade in the Novice 525 Yards contest as Paradise Cisco recorded a two and three parts of a length success over Crokers Sky in 29.22. Crokers Sky showed plenty of pace to lead by two lengths rounding the opening bend with Paradise Cisco in the cat bird seat as others got in each others way. Approaching the third bend though the winner made his move as he eased through on the leaders inside and quickly kicked clear approaching the home bend.

Meade had been celebrating 24 hours previous in the Novice 525 yards contest. Paradise Mission led at the third bend on his way to defeating Zero Space by two and a half lengths in 29.48. The winner tracked the pace setting Zero Space until edging to the front at the three quarter mark.

Derra Misty owned by Sixmilebridge’s Rachel Murray and Sean O’Riordan took the S7 grains powering home four lengths clear of Newchapel Lad in 19.24. The Stephen Murray trained daughter of Laughill Blake & Playmistyforme really went through the gears approaching the opening bend after Drombeg Duke and Newchapel Lad had broken best. Railing well between the two bends Derra Misty was in total control entering the home straight as she stride clear to register career win number three from nine starts.

Quilty owner David Hogan has his string especially the newcomers in tremendous form at present and he claimed another winners prize in the N3 grades spring contest at The College Road venue on Friday night last as his Tromora One proved a length and a half too strong for Garryfine Grace in 19.55.

All six runners in the S6 graded third contest were away in terms but approaching the opening bend the Kerryn Power of Clarecastle owned Brave Black had secured the coveted rails berth and cornering well the Donie Duggan of Tulla trained daughter of Sidaz Jack & Coolronan Mocha took over from the pace setting Night Star on the crown of the home bend. Striding clear in the straight she defeated the staying on Callanna Psycho by two & a half lengths in 19.71.

A seventh career success was recorded by Pinnacle Blue in the A4 graded Bitch 525. Owned by North Clare’s Christina Costelloe, Pinnacle led off the home bend en route to a two and a quarter length success over Allgoodthings in 29.45. The key to the winners success was her tight railing throughout as she was only fifth at the opening bend but passed halfway in third place.
