Offaly Based Syndicate Land €47,000 Prize At Galway Festival

Their horse Jazzaway landed a massive handicap.

There'll be eyes smiling in Ferbane and beyond as a syndicate including an Offaly contingent landed one of the top handicaps at the Galway Festival. 

The 6-year-old Jazzaway prevailed in the Guinness Galway Handicap yesterday evening by a head to bring the €47,200 pot back to the faithful county. 

It's not the first big success for Whitegrass Racing as this same horse took another major handicap at the Punchestown Festival in April. 

Trained by Willie Mullins and ridden by Conor McNamara got up in the final strides at odds of 9/1 to pip Western Victory in the shadows of the post. 

It brings Jazzaway's record under rules to four wins from eight races and she remains unbeaten in 2021 from two runs.
