Gowran Park Success For Paddy Kennedy

TITLEGOESHERE | Radio Kerry | 96-98FM | Your Voice in The Kingdom

While his younger brother Jack has been making headlines, Paddy Kennedy has endured wretched luck with injuries. The Dingle rider has broken his leg three times since last September so that made yesterday’s success on Do Try Dolly at Gowran Park very sweet indeed. Do Try Dolly was sent off at odds of 8-1 for the Follow Gowran Park On Facebook Handicap Hurdle and Kennedy produced Paul Fahey’s charge with a perfectly-timed challenge to beat Fearachain by four and a quarter lengths. It was his first success since Jetson won the Pertemps Qualifier at Punchestown on the second day of February in 2014. Kennedy has been speaking about his win [audio_player src=”http://media.radiokerry.ie/mediamanager/embed/audio/46446/medium/”] Panama Hat won the feature at Dundalk, the Group 3 Diomand Stakes, at odds of 8-11 favourite. Owned by Team Valor, and trained by Andy Oliver, the four-year-old has been a star for connections. Given an excellent ride by Chris Hayes, Panama Hat proved too strong for Carla Bianca. It is a big weekend for Hayes: he rides the hugely popular Sole Power in Longchamp on Sunday.
