Quick Sand wins Eyrefield
Jim Bolger and Kevin Manning completed a hat-trick of wins in the TheTote.com Eyrefield Stakes courtesy of a gutsy success from Dubai Sand at the Curragh.
Jim Bolger has big hopes for Dubai Sand.
The pair landed the last two runnings of the Listed event with Parish Boy and Moonlilght Magic and once again it was the colours of Godolphin that were carried to victory as the 7/1 chance repelled all challengers after kicking clear soon after turning for home.
Diodorus caught the eye flashing home for second but left it too late and could only reduce the deficit to half a length at the line.
Bolger said: "He's a nice staying two-year-old. He's basically a middle-distance horse so it's good that he could do that over a mile on goodish ground. We have something to play with.
"We were restricted in the later part of the season with going and were finding it hard to get good ground.
"With all due respect to Dundalk we didn't want to go on the sand. Hopefully he'll be back here for the Derrinstown Trial next season."
