His charge Out On Friday was sent off the 100/30 favourite.
Offaly trainer Philip Byrne was among the winners at the Galway festival yesterday.
The Birr man's aptly named Out On Friday, ridden by Colin Keane returned the 100/30 favourite in the Caulfied Industrial Handicap in Ballybrit.
The 4 year old had previously failed to find the winners enclosure in sixteen starts under rules but a telling turn of foot off the bend saw him power up the hill to give his trainer a first winner at this years meeting.
The gielding is also entered on Sunday and speaking after the race, Byrne suggested that he will let him take his chance.
Winning trainer Philip Byrne says the experience behind closed doors was surreal:
