Margaret is top tipster

Congratulations to Margaret Barrett (Flanagan) who is not only joint breeder of our 2020 whelp Boylesports Derby winner Annual Fergie but is also the winner of our online Clonmel Tipster competition.

Margaret (pictured right) naturally selected ‘Fergie’ but she also selected Tactical to win the 2020 whelp Horse & Jockey Hotel Oaks. This 33/1 ante post runner only just failed to win her maximum points but her final total of 35 points is enough to win her the prize.

Margaret and three friends will now enjoy a night out at Shelbourne Park on Saturday 18th June for the final of the Sporting Press Irish Oaks including admission, race programme, four course dinner and a bottle of Prosecco.

Annual Fergie was a popular choice and two selected Oaks heroine Rushview Raven (Vincent Fahy, Glanworth and Eamonn Kiely, Cork). However no one selected the winner or runner-up in either the Derby or Oaks for 2019 whelps so one suspects it was a great National Meeting for the bookmakers !!!
