VIDEO: Borice denies Black Corton and Bryony Frost at Galway
on 31 July 2019
The eight-year-old is a third winner of the race for trainer Gordon Elliott in the past four runnings

BORICE bagged another major prize for Gordon Elliott with victory in a thrilling renewal of the Grade A Galway Plate.

Running in the colours of Simon Munir and Isaac Souede, the eight-year-old was giving Elliott a third win in the race from the last four runnings.

It was a dramatic finish, with British raider Black Corton hampered by a loose horse close home, although Borice finished particularly strongly on the near side.

Conceding weight all round, Black Corton had been given a superb ride by Bryony Frost, and was always in the front rank as the Dan Skelton-trained Azzuri set the pace.

Leading over the last two, it looked like another famous success was on the cards for the ground-breaking rider, but Borice and Luke Dempsey would not be denied, winning by three and a quarter lengths.

Snugsborough Benny was third as the 8/1 favourite, with Peregrine Run fourth.
