RACING on Easter Monday may have been dominated by the Gordon Elliott Show but Willie Mullins saddled three winners at Fairyhouse including Coquin Mans who landed the Grade 2 Keelings Irish Strawberry Hurdle in the colours of Belfast’s George Creighton.

Between Elliott’s two winners at the Co Meath track that day, north Co Dublin trainer Karl Thornton broke through the ‘barricade’ when Paper Lantern won the Fred Kenny Lifetime Service To Racing Handicap Chase. The Oscar gelding is owned by the Acorn Syndicate which holds its meetings and celebrations at McKenna’s Bar in Armagh.
