Henry de Bromhead Racing
Champagne takes Gold under Robinson
October 25th 2020.
Champagne Gold ran out a comfortable winner of the Carnsore Point Maiden Hurdle, scoring under Dylan Robinson for Henry de Bromhead.
Placed in a point-to-point at Boulta for Roisin Hickey, the son of Presenting subsequently changed hands for 90,000 pounds.
Second on his racecourse debut at Clonmel earlier this month, the five-year-old bay was expected to go one place better this afternoon and was sent off the 5/4 favourite.
Settled behind the clear leader Jazz Toes, the Barry Maloney owned victor reeled-in that front-runner approaching four out and took over at the head of affairs.
Briefly headed three out, he quickly regained the lead and went a few lengths clear as they entered the straight, keeping on well from there to see off Place Des Vosges by four and a quarter lengths.
