Galway Plate 2011 Result

Blazing Tempo gave trainer Willie Mullins his first winner of the Galway Plate as the favourite prevailed in the highlight of the Galway Festival.

In an incident-packed race Wise Old Owl looked the winner turning for home as he stormed clear, but a power-packed ride from Paul Townend after the last fence sent the seven-year-old in search of John Kiely's runner. 

Townend continued to get a tune out of his mount and she eventually passed Wise Old Owl in the final furlong to win by one-and-a-quarter lengths.

2009 Result

The Galway Plate proved to be an excellent result for the Bookmakers as neither of the two co-favourites, Roby De Cimbre or Wins Now, got in a blow. In fact it was 16/1 shot Ballyholland running the race of his life who romped home in great style to win the most prestigious race of the meeting. Trained by Colm McGratney and ridden perfectly by Andrew McNamara Ballholland was always prominent and seemed to take to the ground better than the rest. He mounted his challenge two from home and never really looked back winning by six lengths from a game Knock On The Head.

Washington Lad who finished third made a bold bid for glory three from home but could not sustain his challenge and faded on the run in. Fourth was Anothercoppercoast.
