3 days…..3 winners!
2nd May 2017
The Bank holiday weekend was a successful one for O’Meara Racing with 3 winners over the 3 day period.
Intisaab took the Visit attheraces.com Handicap at Ripon on Saturday on his first run back after winning the Coral Sprint Trophy at York back in October last year. Drawn low, Intisaab was one of 3 to make a run on the far side rail, leading that trio from 2 furlongs out. Given a great ride by Shelley Birkett he led the field for the final furlong and stayed on well to provide the owner,Stuart Graham, with another success. He is ridden every day at home by Shelley and they have become a great partnership.
On Sunday Muscika (pictured below) had his first start for Team O’Meara when winning at Thirsk on only his third ever run. Drawn 6, under Danny Tudhope, Muscika tracked the leaders and ran on well to win convincingly in the final strides for the Gallop Racing & Dynast Racing Syndicate. The 3 year old son on Kyllachy was bought at the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training sale and is looked after every day by Beccie Hargreaves.
Our third winner over the weekend was provided by Sunglider for owner Gerard Brogan. He took the Etton Handicap at Beverley in great style under Danny Tudhope. Having his first run for the season he tracked the leaders and led entering the final furlong to win decisively. The 4 year old son of High Chaparral is ridden every day at home by Tommy O’Connor.
