ZIGGY COMPLETES IN THE HAT TRICK IN WATERFORD FEATURE

Barry Drake

IT was such a busy weekend of racing we almost forgot about the feature in Waterford on Saturday night, the final of the €1,250 to the winner Grange Road Gallop & Greyhound Extreme 525.

ASHWOOD ZIGGY, trained by Declan Byrne for owners John and Patrick Doyle, putting on a fine performance in the showpiece, the August puppy making it three straight wins. 

The winner didn't produce the best of starts, but the son of Good News showed a massive injection of pace to soon lead. Strong in front, the promising youngster went on to record a career-best performance, coming home four and a half lengths clear of Rastafari Mario.
