Orr on the double for Weld as Donegal trio win at Leopardstown

THREE Donegal jockeys were toasting victories at Leopardstown this afternoon.

Oisin Orr took wins in two races while Luke McAteer and Dylan Browne-McMonagle joined him in the winners’ enclosure.

Orr doubled up for trainer Dermot Weld.

Orr, the joint champion apprentice jockey in 2019, won the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden on the 4/5 favourite Eylara and then added a narrow win on 7/2 chance Amma Grace in the Trigo Stakes.

Anna Grace held on by a neck from 10/1 shot Numerian.

“She did it well and she got a good tactical ride from Oisin,” said Weld.

In the earlier race, Orr had two lengths to spare.

McAteer won the Eyrefield Stakes on the Jim Bolger-trained Flying Visit, which went off at 100/30.

McAteer pipped Orr, who was on Weld’s 7/1 Wuqood, by a head.

Browne-McMonagle won the Retro Drive In Movies At Leopardstown Handicap. On the 15/2 Silver Service, the Letterkenny teenager had over two lengths of a gap to 7/2 favourite Kodiac Prince over the seven furlongs.
