Quick Jack the lad for
Martin in Galway Hurdle
Report: Galway, Thursday
Guinness Galway Hurdle Handicap 2m, 4yo +
QUICK JACK landed a second successive Galway Hurdle for trainer Tony Martin, who will have had mixed feelings in the straight having watched last year's winner Thomas Edison crash out when holding every chance alongside the winner.
Denis O'Regan rode a supremely confident race on 9-2 second favourite Quick Jack and took the lead before the last where he was pressed by Thomas Edison, who failed to jump the obstacle and came crashing down. Horse and rider Barry Geraghty were soon to their feet.
