TWELVE-year-old Cork rider Dylan O’Connor took the riding honours at the second Midlands Region Meeting in Dartfield Horse Park, Loughrea, Co. Galway as he registered a magnificent four-timer. Temple Hill Tamara got O’Connor off to a great start by following up their opening meeting win in taking the 12.2hh race for Mallow Co. Cork-based J.J. O’Keeffe.

Little Maine was another to repeat the win of the opening meeting as she quickly doubled Dylan’s tally in the 13.2hh race, making all to win impressively for Monasterevin, Co. Kildare owner Megan Byrne, granddaughter of winning trainer Buddy Harrison.
