The Native Horse and Pony Racing received underway final Sunday in Carndonagh and it didn’t disappoint as some unbelievable finishes had been witnessed by the great crowd that turned up.
Donegal has been a great breeding floor for jockeys which have gone on to higher issues with the likes of Oisin Orr Luke Mc Ateer and Letterkenny star Dylan Browne Mc Monagle however we may have one other rising star within the form of Ballyare man Patrick Mc Gettigan (pictured above) who recorded his first ever double.
Patrick received the ball rolling when he gave Wee Bucks a wonderfully judged experience within the 148cm ponies making all and stayed on strongly to fend off all challengers and doubled up on Fiadh’s Fancy coming from off the tempo for a trendy win within the 153cm pony race.
One other Letterkenny man Brodie Ferry who’s trying to observe within the footsteps of his idol Dylan Browne Mc Monagle received his first winner within the Northwest when making all on Little Lioness within the 128cm pony race.
Tiernan Mc Gill who hails from Finntown was collared late on within the 143cm on board his personal pony Swilly Spirit and it shouldn’t be all that lengthy until this boy will get in to the winners’ circle within the coming weeks.
Racing resumes on Sunday week in Navan Co Meath at 1pm.
