Ian Fortune

Droopys Got It was the undoubted star of proceedings at Shelbourne Park on Friday night as he posted a sizzling 28.16 on his way to a facile victory in the final of the A3 525.

It was quite a way to say goodbye to graded company.

The Ian Reilly trained son of Tullymurry Act and former top-class performer Droopys Hunch really id look the real deal as he dispatched his rivals with consummate ease. Flashing from trap two, the November ’20 whelp who is owned by the Keogh, Senyk, Reilly Syndicate was never under a moment’s pressure.

Building a clear lead before the second bend, he posted a rapid 15.86 to the third turn before emerging a facile eight length winner. Roman Forum overcame a slow start to take second but had no answer to Droopys Got It who really does seem to have a big future.    


Moyola Seamrog took his opportunity when it arose in the second final on the card, that of the Barking Buzz App A2 Dual Distance.

The long run to the turn seemed to suit kennel companions Dromana Fury and Dromana Twirl as they raced clear of their rivals but the pair clashed on the bend, leaving Moyola Seamrog to seize his opportunity with relish. 

The Marie Gilbert trained son of Kinloch Brae and Moyola Inion has always been a strong runner and he was never gong to relinquish his lead. Romantic Bogger emerged from the pack to give chase in the closing yards but Moyola Seamrog, who was being cheered on by his owners, the Five Morettis Syndicate, from a ‘random pub’ in Northampton, ran right to the line to score by six and a half lengths in 31.69.
