Westmeath Trainer Lands Long Shot Success At Dundalk

It's Ger Hussey's second winner at the polytrack in Louth.

Westmeath trainer Ger Hussey recorded his second success at Dundalk on Sunday. 

In a major upset, 33/1 shot Maccliff ridden by Siobhan Rutledge won an 8f handicap at Dundalk yesterday. 

It follows on from the Tyrellspass trainer's win with Macaban City at Dundalk last November. 

Speaking of the win, Hussey said:

“Siobhan’s claim was important today. Maccliff has been dogged by bad draws and to win from that draw (13) today I thought was exceptional.

She’s a tough little cookie, toughed it out well, and probably won a bit cosily in the end. When we found her right trip, she started to find her feet.”
