Saturday, July 13, 2019

Smiling Eliza is welcomed back by racing club member Justin O'Donovan

Smiling Eliza edged out the Charles Byrnes trained Give Battle to land the €15,000 'Tote Backs Your Team' Handicap Hurdle.  The thrilling finish saw the Gordon Elliott Racing Club battle it out with the Byrnsey Boys Syndicate, only a nose separating the pair at the line.


The winner was welcomed back into the enclosure by racing club member Justin O'Donovan who commented: "This is my first winner being at the track, I've had loads of seconds and thirds. Only for it (the Gordon Elliott Racing Club) the likes of me would never meet somebody like Gordon -  It's just brilliant!"

Off the racetrack connections of the 12 runners, along with potential owners, enjoyed a BBQ in the Pavilion restaurant which was hosted by the Ownership Department.

Bellewstown racecourse will stage the next dedicated race for syndicate and clubs, on August 29th.
