At The Races published this video item, entitled “Jim Bolger is a legend! Mac Swiney lands his 78 year-old trainer Group 1 glory” – below is their description.
Mac Swiney was a tenacious winner of the Vertem Futurity Trophy at Doncaster. Jim Bolger’s challenger, a Group Two winner on soft ground at the Curragh in August, had since managed only eighth of 10 on a quicker surface over the same course and distance in the National Stakes. But he again revelled in testing conditions as the rain set in on Town Moor, with the 12-1 shot challenging last under Kevin Manning to overhaul eventual third Baradar and hold off 6-4 favourite One Ruler in the final furlong, scoring by three-quarters of a length. Paddy Power and Betfair responded by halving Mac Swiney’s odds for next year’s Derby to 20-1 from 40-1. ——————- Enjoy the best of Sky Sports Racing on the free and award-winning At The Races app: iPhone: http://apple.co/1I4NxAV Android: http://bit.ly/1VPIcEz facebook.com/AtTheRaces twitter.com/AtTheRaces instagram.com/at_the_racesAt The Races YouTube Channel
