Galway results 2012 day 3
Thomas Mullins and Mark Walsh were the stars of the show on day three of the Galway Festival as they teamed up with the superb Bob Lingo to land the coveted Galway Plate prize, as he battled to fend off a spirited effort from Casey Top in a memorable renewal of the blue riband event.
Elsewhere on the card, Novarov was a fairly facile winner of the Tote Jackpot Races 3 To 6 Handicap Hurdle, whilst Willie Mullins' Fatcatinthehat could be a star of the future after he sauntered to success in the Tote Marquee Maiden.
