Domain King followed up his impressive victory in the John Prendiville Cup in Listowel as he claimed the Fran Mangan Cup in Cappoquin this afternoon. The son of Kyle Basil and Lyrics, a litter brother of Kyle Mozart, claimed the honours for the Carden Syndicate when Navins Casanova was withdrawn from the final.
The All Age Bitch Stake saw Ballymac Blue complete a double on the day for Liam Dowling, as she got the better of Seaside Sophie in the final. Ballymac, a daughter of Blueview Sam and Ashtown Amy, only came into the stake as the second reserve. Beaten in the final of the Kilflynn Oaks Trial Stake last season, Ballymac had reached a couple of semi-finals since but finally got over the line today.
The Oaks Trial Stake ticket went to Count Belle, owned by Den Morrin and Jon Knowles. The daughter of Thomas The Tank and Adios Alonso had steadily progressed through the season reaching a third round and semi-final at the Galway and Oranmore meeting and the Killimer Kilrush meetings respectively. The vanquished final runner Iberostar was losing out in her second final in two weeks. She is trained by Paudie Lyons.
Lyons completed a double on the day when he claimed the Reserve Derby Trial Stake with Wiseguy Pat getting the better of Doire Na Tobraid. Owned by Ava Lyons, Wiseguy Pat had reached semi-finals at Galway and Oranmore and Abbeydorney meetings. He is a son of Kyle Leigh and Stick Back.
