LETTERKENNY JOCKEY Dylan Browne-McMonagle excelled at the weekend at the Dingle Derby.
Browne-Monagle, the 13-year-old from the Mountain Top who came to prominance at Dingle last year when he rode three winners, was the champion jockey over the three days this time around.
Browne-McMonagle had six wins and again outlined his undoubted prowess in the saddle.
He began with real intent on Friday with a treble.[adrotate group=”38″]
First up, he steered Athea Jade to glory in the mile and a quarter open and doubled up aboard Ya Wee Skitter in the Sean Cleary Memorial.
A third victory on Friday followed on Five Stone Of Lead to give him a superb opening to the weekend.
Browne-McMonagle had received an invite to spend some time with 20-time champion jockey AP McCoy after his success at the Ballintaggart venue last year, with a short film having been made about the Letterkenny lad.[adrotate group=”37″]
On Saturday, Browne-McMonagle was third on Call The Guards, but took victory in the 15 Hands Derby on Sky’s The Limit, owned by Alan D and Celine Sweeney.
Again on the Adrian Browne-trained Athea Jade, Browne-McMonagle was off to a winning start on Sunday in the mile and a half race before he rounded off an impressive weekend with a win on Five Stone Of Lead in the third race of the day.
Browne-McMonagle was the leading male jockey and was yet another indication of his growing talents.[adrotate group=”70″] Tags:
