Wexford Woman Teams Up With Kilkenny Hurling Legend For Leopardstown Winner

A Wexford woman has teamed up with a Kilkenny hurling legend…

Wexford woman, Mary Ellen Doyle, who is new the horse-training world had teamed up with a Kilkenny hurling legend and she tasted her first training success on the track today.

She teamed up with Kilkenny hurling legend, Charlie Carter, who had bred the horse.

The horse named ‘Howyabud’ provided Doyle with her first track winner. It was in the Savills Ireland Maiden Hurdle which took place at Leopardstown Racecourse today.

“I only got my licence in March and that’s my first track winner. He had good bumper form coming here and ran well in a very good point-to-point in Monksgrange. We think a lot of him,” Doyle said following the victory.

The horse, draped in Carter’s Kilkenny colours of black and amber with Kilkenny jockey Jack Foley on board, was a shock result, priced at 25/1 with the bookies.
