WEST CORK, IR - Its being quite a week for Kieran Sheehy who is Stud Farm Manager at Moran Stud Farm who enjoyed success at Tipperary race course during the week and on Saturday evening Sheehy took the High grade Trot at Lissangle with Vivo De Bassiere .
 
Sheehy sent the nine year old to the front after half a lap and was never in danger easing to a 10 length victory.
 
Reclamation a three year old daughter of A Rock N Roll Dance showed she can handle all surfaces when landing the Grade F E & D Pace .A winner on the hard track in Portmarnock last week she followed up with a facile win on grass this week .Jointly owned by Bill Donovan from Florida and IB Stables in Baltimore she will be aimed at The M50 Skip Hire three year classic in mid July.
 
Tadhg Murphy who holds the trainers licence at IB stables had a smile as broad as the harbour in his native Baltimore when his son Eoin took the saddle race with Hail Spartucus.
 
Eoin a 14 year student has definitely inherited the family genes giving a polished performance on the winner who is owned by the Hill family owners of Hillside Farms.
 
John O Mahony and Luke Kelleher two of our up and coming drivers both got on the score sheet .
O Mahony got Moorside Captain through "the eye of a Needle" up the inside of Panarc in the final eighth of a mile to take the G & G1 Pace.
 
The runner up driven by novice driver Kevin Myles will win soon but today was another learning curve .
Meadowbrach Demon and Luke Kelleher are a formidable pairing and took the High Grade Pace. Rhyds Dilemma and then Supreme Sunshine both led but with 3 furlongs remaining Kelleher sent "The Iron Horse " alight and ran out a three length winner .
 
Heather Breeze and IB A Magican served up a titanic battle in the opener and the former was not to be denied winning by a head .
 
Dream De Broeuts has showed promise in his three previous runs and got the better of Un Boss in another photo finish.Once again a winning distance of a head for owner driver Patrick Hill .
 
Sunday 8th July is the next West Cork meeting in Drimoleague.
