The fastest dog in Millstreet when I was a young boy
Was owned and bred by Maurice Connors his name was Black July
Trained by Paddy O Keeffe at Dooneen a leading trainer then
In the Kennedy cup at Limerick he had a famous win.
A son of Cheeky Tippy and Maddest Lily the striking black and white
Was Ireland’s fastest greyhound when he was in full flight
The Irish Derby favourite he was the one to beat
And one of the fastest greyhounds to come out of Millstreet.
Thursday’s Examiner had a piece on up and coming local dog who looks like making a bit of name for himself: “Crossfield Bruce, from the prolific Millstreet kennels of Brendan O’Shea (Cockhill), can land heat three of the Seftec NMCI Offshore A4 525 Stakes at Curraheen Park tonight. The selection is an improving sort, boasting a record of two wins from four starts, and can continue on an upward curve. Crossfield Bruce was soon at the head of affairs when scoring in 29.25 at the start of the month …”
Indeed he did land the 525 heat tonight in a time of 29.33, two lengths ahead of his nearest rival. He got a clean break from trap #6, led all the way, and the line came too soon for his challengers. See the video of the race below: [read more …] “Betting on Bruce”
THERE was a thrilling finish to the North Cork Cup at Millstreet, Co. Cork yesterday when Party Jay Cee came racing through to narrowly take the opening turn against Millbridge Eoin and capture the prize.
The winner had put out the overnight favourite, Blazing Serpent in the semi-final. He was away smartly from slips and although Blazing Serpent closed as they neared the hare he had to give best by a length. Millbridge Eoin saw off Tubbermartin Lad in his semi-final, taking the opening turn by three lengths. [read more …] “Coursing Results”
