Galway results 2011 day 2

Dermot Weld enhanced his incomparable record at the Galway Festival by landing an impressive treble with Stunning View taking glory in the Topaz Galway Mile, Rainforest Magic in the Topaz Handicap and Catch The Eye, who bagged the easiest victory of the night in the Caulfield Industrial EBF Maiden.

Princeton Plains won the opening contest, the Topaz Novice Hurdle, on day two of the Galway Festival beating favourite London Bridge by one-and-half lengths.  Held out the back for most of the race, Niall Madden then pushed his mount to the lead in the final furlong to win with plenty in hand.

Dessie Hughes bagged the second contest of the night as Sarteano caught long time leader Willies Girl in the home straight to win the 2m 6f Latin Quarter Chase.

Aidan O'Brien got off the mark at the Galway Festival with Soon in the Caulfied Industrial Fillies Maiden at 19:15, as his daughter of Galileo reeled in Kevin Prendergast's Redoubtable to win by a head.

Johnny Murtagh racked up his first Galway winner for 2011 after partnering the Edward Lynam-trained Iron Major who won in a blanket finish in the Caulfield Industrial Athlone Handicap.
