The final of the Red Mills Open Unraced Stake, worth €6,000 to the winner, was the main attraction on the ten race card at Curraheen Park on Saturday night with victory going to the 5/4 favourite Burgess Dubh (Hondo Black-Borna Luck) before a big crowd in 28.57 on a surface rated .10 fast for 525 and .05 for 330.
Joshuas Prince gets the nap to take the fourth race at Curraheen, where the final of the Two Wheel Training A2 525 is the feature.

Not only did Hee Haws Sheriff claim the scalp of kennel companion Quietly in the opening quarter-final of the Greyhound & Petworld Supersprint on Saturday night at Curraheen Park, the Ian Reilly-trained runner also knocked nine spots off the track record which his kennelmate set just seven days previously.
Corrin Tiger rates nap material to take tonight’s sixth race at Youghal, where the first race is off at 7.03pm. The experienced tracker has been running well without winning recently and, as a result, earned a drop in grade.
