Gordon Bros & Sons 1st & 2nd Open Horse & Jockey

Gordons

For the 5th Young Bird Race the East Down Combine were back at the Race point near Thurles (The Horse & Jockey ) . The variable August weather once again was unsuitable for a Saturday race so the race was rescheduled for Sunday with the birds being race marked on the Saturday evening and they were released on Sunday morning at 9.30am into a West wind which saw the leading birds making over 1900ypm . This saw the clubs out on the East Coast having the early birds with Gordon Bros & Sons having a great race with 1st & 2nd open with a further 10 birds in the Open result . C & H Cully were 3rd open ,Harper & Young were 4th Open both lofts belonging to the Cloughey club and the East section . The East section dominated winning all 40 Open places .

Top six places in the West Section were to members of the Crossgar club with Alex & Anne Cheevers winning 1st ,3rd & 4th West Section ,Joe McGreevy was 2nd and McCartan & Woodsides were 5th & 6th .
