Keane fires in another winner on Floyd

Keane fires in another winner on Floyd

Colin Keane made it a five winner advantage again in the jockeys’ title race when Pretty Boy Floyd claimed the six-furlong handicap at the Curragh this afternoon.

His rival Shane Foley had been on the mark in the opener but Keane struck back a couple of races later.

Glow Worm made a bold bid on the far side in the Equilux sponsored event and had her rivals on the stretch passing the two pole.

Pretty Boy Floyd was always to the fore on the stand’s rail, under Keane, and got to the front inside the final furlong.

The Sarah Dawson trained gelding kept on well close home to post a length success over Enter The Red.

The 11/2 winner came into the race off the back of good run, having finished third at Navan eight days ago on his return from a short break.

Dawson wasn’t present to welcome back in her winner.
