Harrington's golden spell continues with treble
Gold Cup-winning trainer Jessica Harrington had yet more reason to celebrate on Saturday as she saddled a 155-1 treble on the Flat at Cork.
Harrington, who saddled Supasundae and Sizing John to win at the Cheltenham Festival last month, proved her versatility as a dual-purpose trainer by saddling three winners on the level.
Things got off to a fantastic start, as Lady Derrynane won the second race, a 1m½f handicap, at 7-1. Stablemate and 11-4 joint-favourite Make It Hurrah finished third.
Caherdaniel played his part in proceedings and claimed a narrow success in the maiden at 3.20, gunning down the Aidan O'Brien-trained Pocketfullofdreams in the final strides.
Light That, Harrington's final runner of the day, had 15 rivals to beat in the 1m2f handicap (3.55). Thankfully, the 9-4 favourite read the script and duly obliged by half a length, giving jockey Colm O'Donoghue a double in the process.
'It's been a great day'
Kate Harrington, representing her mother, said: "Mum said that she's going to stay home and mow the lawn more often!
"I don't know if we've had a treble on the Flat before but we have had a good few doubles. It's been a great day."
Bell back among winners
Another one of racing's leading ladies was back on scoresheet on Saturday, as Sammy Jo Bell recorded her first winner back from injury as Cullingworth sprung a surprise at 16-1 in the Royal Mile Handicap at Musselburgh.
