Fogarty’s Flying Start

Mikey Fogarty has really hit the ground running since turning professional. The Wexford native joined forces with Richie Rath on the first day at Listowel to win on Ballynaclash Warior in a 3 mile maiden hurdle. The winner a 7 year old son of Norwich stayed on well to win at 25/1. Fogarty then linked up with Paul Nolan on the final day of the Listowel meeting on Saturday to kick home Dick Dundee in the handicap chase over 2 miles and 1 furlong. The 8 year old son of Kings Theatre won in a driving finish at 12/1. Racing in the silks of Paul Nolan himself this horse came back to form at Wexford Racecourse earlier in the year having been disappointing. Fogarty was a classy amateur jockey and he must hope that he can build on this good start to his new professional career.
