There was a thrilling opening weekend at Greenmount Park on St. Patrick’s weekend. Vroum Vroum Mag proved a different class to her rivals when she romped to victory in the Grade Two EBF Dawn Run Mares Novice Chase. The 4/11 favourite, trained by Willie Mullins, took her perfect record over fences to four as she won for jockey Ruby Walsh.
Vroum Vroum Mag went on to win the race by eight lengths. “She jumped super, it wasn’t the plan to be in front going up the back but she was travelling so well.” Ruby Walsh said after the race.
Looking ahead at racing on Sunday 29th March, the feature race is the Hugh McMahon Memorial Novice Steeplechase (Grade 2) of €40,000 which was won by Touch The Eden ridden by Paul Townend in 2014. The Kevin McManus Bookmaker Champion (Pro/Am) Flat Race (Listed) of €25000.00 is another race to consider which was won by Aminabad in 2014 and trained by Willie Mullins.
