Mitchelstown rider Eoin O’Brien is enjoying a stellar season in the plate and at Sunday last’s well supported Kilworth and Araglin Point to Point’s O’Brien brought his seasonal tally to a very credible ten winners to date.
O’Brien’s sole success on the day came about in the adjacent Hunt Maiden where he teamed up with the Edmond Kent trained Breaking Ground (5/4-11/4) with the 5 yr old progeny of Echo of Light prevailing by 1l in a pulsating drive from the back to the last.
