Roche gets most of his rides from Dermot Weld but it was the in-form Willie McCreery who booked him for ‘Peticoatgovernment’ last night and it proved a shrewd move. Roche tracked the leaders on the 10-1 shot before asking her to challenge two furlongs out and she kept on strongly to record a length-and-a-quarter success over Flowerhill Nova.

Predator Team Look Forward To National Junior Championships

first_imgFresh from representing Ireland at the European Mixed Relay Championships in Spain, Predator Triathlon Club’s junior racers will turn their focus to the latest leg of the National Junior Championships – but this time they will look to benefit from home field advantage at Loughrea Triathlon Festival. Ten of the club’s underage triathletes competed in the senior and junior mixed relays in the Spanish city of Banyoles on Sunday, a massive achievement and a huge honour for the club. Predator Triathlon Club members and supporters pictured after competing at the European Mixed Relay Championships in Banyoles, Spain on Sunday last.center_img As winners of the Irish qualifier at Lough Cutra Castle at the end of May, the Predator Triathlon Club junior team went on to the European finals, where they eventually finished sixth, while a second junior team, who finished runners up in the senior race in Gort, also made the cut.The ten triathletes who represented the club at the European Championships were: Emma Boyle, Tiernan Burke, Cian Cloonan, Ryan Connolly, Molly Foley, Fabian Mangan, Ciara O’Boyle, Caron Ryan, Ben Ryan and Ben Vahey.Chairman of Predator Triathlon Club, Finbarr Connolly, said it was a proud day for everyone involved in the club.“I’d like to congratulate the ten junior triathletes from Predator Triathlon Club, who represented us with such determination and skill in Banyoles at the weekend,” said Connolly.“The Predator teams had an amazing race and they all stepped up to the challenge with pride and conviction – such a proud day for the club.“This is such a massive honour for Predator Triathlon Club that they young athletes have represented Ireland like they did. I wish them all the best for the remainder of the racing season. The club is very proud of them.”The Junior Vodafone National Series winner is calculated from the four best sprint times over the summer’s racing, and with two Predator Triathlon Club members in the top three of the standings competition will be fierce on Sunday August 6th, for the Loughrea Triathlon Festival.Current leader in the standings is Fabian Mangan (329.175 points), while clubmate and third placed Ben Ryan (235.485 points) will look to close the gap in familiar waters and roads.Meanwhile, due to an overwhelming interest in the youth races (under 16s) of Loughrea Triathlon Festival, applications to race are no longer being accepted. There does remain places for the senior and junior (16 to 19 year olds) events, while the replay and para triathlon races also have some availability.Just 100 race places remain still open for the senior sprint race, but considering most competitors leave it until the final week to put their name down, this year’s event looks like being a sell-out once again.Competitors in the sprint event will be asked to complete the first leg of the race, a 750m swim in the crystal clear blue flag waters of Loughrea Lake, before they take to their bikes for a 20km cycle on the challenging route around the locality. The final leg of the race will be a 5km run on a closed circuit, whit the finish line at Long Point at Loughrea Lake.To take part in the Loughrea Triathlon Festival, racers need to be the holder of a Triathlon Ireland racing licence – a day licence can be obtained at www.triathlonireland.ie – are required to wear a wetsuit for the swim leg, and the cyclist must have a roadworthy bike and wear a helmet.Anyone interested in taking part can sign up at www.loughreatriathlon.ie or via Triathlon Ireland.Predator Triathlon Club members and supporters pictured after competing at the European Mixed Relay Championships in Banyoles, Spain on Sunday last.print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Emaillast_img read more

Mauser wins his third Garden State Classic Port Monmouth’s Crimaldi takes street stock feature

first_imgBy tim morris Mauser wins his third Garden State Classic Port Monmouth’s Crimaldi takes street stock feature Tom Mauser and his crew didn’t have their No. 45 stock car set up right for the time trial, but they got it right when it mattered most, in the 100-lap Garden State Classic. Despite having to qualify for the Classic through a heat race after failing to earn one of the eight automatic berths that went to the fastest drivers in the special one-lap Modified time trial session, Mauser was the class of the field, winning the Garden State Classic for the third time last Saturday night at Wall Stadium. The Farmingdale native who now lives in Barnegat proved that there is a very big difference between being fast in a time trial and fast in a race. “Even though we were disappointed with our time trial, I still knew we could win,” said the veteran driver whose other Classic wins came 10 years apart in 1987 and 1997. “My crew made a lot of changes after time trials and they really seemed to work. “The car was great in the feature,” he added. “It was a pleasure to drive and I could have easily gone another 100 laps. In fact, I wish we would.” Ken Woolley Jr. of Howell was the runner-up at the checkered flag. Woolley and Absecon’s Dave Garfinkel were the early pace-setters in the extra-distance event. The two traded the lead back and forth early in the race before Woolley took charge. Meanwhile, Mauser was weaving his way through traffic from the 12th starting position. He was in the top three at lap 15, and on the 16th circuit went by Garfinkel for second. After a restart on lap 21, Mauser powered his way into the lead over Woolley. After getting to the front, Mauser motored away from the field. The only race left was for runner-up. Woolley surrendered the second spot to Sam Russo of Cream Ridge and to Dave Michel of Manahawkin, but regained it with 20 laps remaining and held on from there. It was a gritty race by Woolley, who has a broken arm which pained him throughout the 100 laps. Russo was third, Garfinkel, fourth and Michel, five. Rounding out the Top 10 were: J.R. Helberg, Ronnie Mullen, Charlie Kremer Jr., Freehold’s Harry Reed and Dave Anderson. The win was the third of the season in the Modified Division for Mauser. It was a big night for car owner Tim Shinn as his United Crane Rentals cars, driven by Mauser and Woolley, went one-two. The 20-lap Street Stock main event produced a thrilling battle for the lead, with Port Monmouth’s Anthony Crimaldi holding off the advances of Toms River’s Geoff Green to take the checkered flag. Crimaldi took home his first victory of the season in dramatic fashion after consistently improving his performances in recent races. Current points leader Larry Thompson of Parlin helped his championship aspirations by taking third place. Fourth went to Farmingdale’s John McCormack with Howell’s Russ Cook, fifth. In the 25-lap Pro Stock headliner, Farmingdale’s Rob Williams and defending champion Ray Gastelu also hooked up in a memorable battle. The two went side-by-side as they threw everything they had at each other in order to get the feature win. It was Williams who was able to muscle his way to the win, his third of the season with Gastelu, second. Wall’s Mike Shea was third followed by Piscataway’s Kenney Reaves and Farmingdale’s Jim Vogt. Phil Naylor was first to the finish line in the 20-lap Truck Series feature. He topped defending Series champion Tim Buckley of Colts Neck. The 20-lap Legend Cars main event went to points leader and defending champion Tim Henry of Schencksville, Pa.last_img read more
