Ruby Walsh produced a brilliant ride on Easy Game in Navan last Sunday, silencing the gutless social media critics who were quick to write him off as he struggled to come back after a series of injuries, writes Pat Keane
Ruby Walsh has had a bad 12 months or so with injuries, his latest setback coming on August 25 at Killarney.
That afternoon disaster struck in the second race on the card, a novice hurdle. Walsh was aboard the favourite, Sapphire Lady, who spun out of the contest at the sixth flight. He suffered severe bruising to his ribs and vertebrae and didn’t return to action until October 14, at Limerick.
It proved to be a less than perfect comeback, however, with Walsh getting beaten on his two rides, both having started favourite.
