THE wet weather which returned on Sunday did not dampen the spirits of the racegoers in Kilbegann although it did lead to the going being changed from good to firm to good after the opening race.
There was an excellent card of action on the day for the large and enthusiastic crowd to enjoy on family day with two favourites passing the post first.
The first race was off at 2.30pm and it was won by Daffern Seal who romped to victory by 13 lenghts. The horse, trained by Dermot Weld, went off at 9/1.
The 3.20pm went to another outsider with Moi Desire coming home first at 10/1 with just three quarters of a length to spare over Brave Beauty.
The first favourite to win on Sunday was Mind the Steps in the 3.50pm who had just a short head to spare over Charger.
The 4.25pm and the 4.55pm were both won by 14/1 shots with the Timothy Cleary trained Katie’s Jim and the Irene Monaghan trained Keogh’s Bar winning the respective races. That completed a double for jockey Eddie O’Connell who had earlier ridden Moi Desire to victory
Mr Springer romped home with ten lengths to spare in the penultimate race while the 2/1 favourite Marwood won the last with Nina Carberry on board.
