Rachael Blackmore fans had plenty to cheer about at Killarney Races on Monday evening as the Gold Cup and Grand National winning jockey romped to victory in the Cronin Electrical Maiden Hurdle.
She piloted 4/9 favourite The Short Go to victory for Henry De Bromhead and, amusingly enough, the horse she beat into second place was named All for Rachel.
Diarmuid Cronin got to present the winning prize to Rachael and that will be a snapshot for the mantelpiece for the popular Killarney electrician who is better known for his association with motorsport than horseracing.
There was another bumper crowd in attendance with the favourable elements bringing punters out in force.
This Tuesday is the final day of the three-day MayFest and the action gets underway at 5.00pm.
