Galway results 2012 day 1
Dermot Weld was the star of the show on the opening day of the 2012 Galway Festival as the master of Rosewell House trained a superb treble on the card to continue his fine affiliation with the Ballybrit venue.
He bagged the main event of the day with Midnight Music, who stormed to an 11/1 in the Galway City Handicap, whilst Train Of Thought and Thunder Mountain were another couple of notable winners for Weld.
