Huge crowds at the Leopardstown Two-Day Festival (over 18,000 attended yesterday). Todays Irish Champion Hurdle Grade 1 (114,000 to the winner) only had five runners and STATE MAN was an impressive winner with HONEYSUCKLE second. In the Novice Chase Grade 1 (90k to the winner) - there were only six runners and W.Mullins trained five of the runners and he didn't win! the race went to the G.Elliott trained MIGHTY POTTER . The other six races on the card had winners prizemoney of 60,000 - 90,000 - 90,000 - 90,000 - 90,000 - 60,000. That is some prizemoney for National Hunt Racing. Yesterdays Seven races had the following winners prizemoney 60,000 each 3 races, 90,000 another each 3 races and the feature races the Irish Gold Cup Grade 1 had 142,000 for the winner. Now I stress, all those listed monies were WINNERS prizemoney and there was plenty more for the placed runners for instance 51,000 for the second in the Gold Cup. Reply
