A DOUBLE at the Ballymacad point-to-point outside Oldcastle, Co Meath last Sunday saw Mark O’Hare move on to the 21-win mark for the season. The Co Down farrier has recorded 18 of those victories in the Northern region, a figure twice that of his nearest rival, Barry O’Neill.

The second of his successes came in the winners of one where the George Stewart-owned and trained Step Back outbattled the Jamie Codd-partnered Aztec Chief, a 10-year-old Great Palm gelding, who was bred by Denis Macauley out of his Commanche Run mare Wigwam Mam, the dam of Brave Inca.
