Galway results 2013 day 1
Dermot Weld got off to the perfect start by landing victory in two of the first three races of the 2013 Galway Festival and Mustajeeb in particular could be a potential Group horse in the making, but the main event on day one went to Tony Martin, who saddled Edeymi to victory in the Connacht Hotel Handicap at 6:45pm.
Dark Crusader was another winner later on in the evening for Martin, whilst Target Acquired battled to victory in the Clayton Hotel Galway Handicap at 7:15pm, whilst Willie Mullins bagged his first winner of the week in the last race as Wicklow Brave outbattled the well fancied Marty's Magic.
