AN already outstanding season for Current Option reached a new high as the Adrian McGuinness flagbearer bagged a first pattern race success in the Group 3 Coolmore U S Navy Flag Concorde Stakes.

A second Group 3 winner for both McGuinness and star apprentice Gavin Ryan, this Dooley Thoroughbreds, Shamrock Thoroughbreds and Bart O’Sullivan-owned four-year-old was adding further lustre to a season that had already yielded a premier handicap win at Galway and a listed success at Cork.
