The €8,500 Tralee’s Lee Strand 550 Final took centre stage in Ireland last week resulted in a career best performance for Paul Hennessy’s 19 month old bitch pup Cornerhouse Lady. A second nomination for the Kerry track is for a fine 525 performance from another youngster, Fast Hurling.

There are two major events running concurrently at Shelbourne. Mags Angel went quickest in the Irish Oaks quarter final, where new track record holder Ardnasool Jet went best in the semis of the former Harolds Cross top two bend event, the Islandbrige Open Sprint.

At Clonmel, Riverside Leo was by far the quickest of the second round winners of the Produce Stakes. There was an unusual event at Cork when Rockybay Foley was for once outshone by another winner, in this case Spoofer with a 28.00 victory.

The performance of the week though goes to Tom Hasson’s Mysterious Messi. Although there has been no official acknowledgement, we believe that his 16.48 constitutes a new track record for the Derry 300 yard course.
