LUNA ROCKET made it four straight wins in the final of the €5,000 to the winner Greyhound & Petworld A1 stake at Curraheen Park on Saturday night.
Trained by Paul Hennessy for owners Michael McGlynn and Wayne Leonard, the 4-6 market leader showed plenty of early speed and she was in a great early battle with Butterbridge Ivy.

Another stunning display, six lengths clear of the running on Brogan Highway, in 28.45. Three lengths behind the runner up in third was Young Bud.
