MANY congratulations to Annalise Cullen who rode her first winner on the racecourse on Monday afternoon when Zephron, who was sent off 11/2 joint favourite, landed the concluding six-furlong handicap at The Curragh by two and three-quarter lengths.

This was an 18th ride on the track, and a fourth in succession on Richard MacBriatharlaoch’s Zephron, for 19-year-old Cullen who was a very well-known and successful member of the Kildare Branch of the Irish Pony Club and also competed as a pony rider and as a Junior in many home international horse trials.
