Dylan Browne McMonagle made the long round trip to Co. Tipperary on Sunday and it was another fruitful journey as the 16-year-old Letterkenny jockey landed a treble at a sun-drenched Kilbarron.
The teenager’s first win came in the 143 cm when he gave Unhinged a pretty cool and statuesque ride when winning with any amount in hand, accounting for Willy No Legs and Bushfire.

But the National Champion Jockey had to get pretty animated aboard the prolific Five Stone Of Lead in the 148cm to get the better of Susie Q and Waratah in a grandstand finish.
Dylan’s Treble came in the 12 furlongs Open when he gave Let It Go a very patient ride from the rear of the field and he delivered him with a perfectly timed challenge a furlong out to beat off Non Positive and Movina’s Boy.
Another Local Letterkenny Rider Brandon Wilkie took an unfortunate tumble in the 138cm aboard Little Spirit while disputing the lead two furlongs out but did get to his feet unscathed.
Racing again in the Northwest on Sunday 26th May at Porthall Lifford Commencing at 2.30pm.Tags:
