Racing in Curraheen Park produced a number of brilliant performances on Saturday night.
March youngster Roaming Turbo (Droopys Sydney-Roaming Shari) made it two wins from as many starts in race seven, an A0/A1.
Trained by Kieran Lynch for owners Eoin Ivers and Fintan Lawlor, the 5-4 favourite wasn't the quickest into the stride, but he showed a bit of early zip into the first corner as he turned in mid-division. Footfield Athena was setting the early fractions up front and the winner soon moved second after running the opening corners well.
With three lengths to make up heading down the far side, the exciting youngster showed big speed as he finished strongest to land the spoils. At the line, Roaming Turbo was a length clear of Footfield Athena, in 28.56.
A WONDERFUL SERVANT
A wonderful servant for connections, Fitzys Last recorded back to back winning performances in race 10, an A2, for owners Finbarr and Liam Fitzgerald.
Producing a dream start along the outside, the 6-4 winner was in a great early battle with Ashgrove Moana. Much the strongest in the second half of the race, the consistent performer pulled away to win, by four and a half lengths, in 28.49.
In race nine, Droopys Iconic overcame the trap five draw to win for owners the Golden-Spoon-Syndicate and trainer Pat Kiely.
Showing a lovely touch of early dash, the 3-1 shot slipped around in front, soon four clear, he was all out in the closing stages to hold the fast finishing Ballydague Bella. Half a length the margin, in 28.61.
