THEY may have been split up to watch the race, some at home and some on the hill overlooking the racecourse, but the Downpatrick-based Ringhill Syndicate were delighted when their Stowaway mare Ringhill Lady obliged at their local track last Friday week afternoon.

Trained by James Lambe and ridden by Conor Orr, the six-year-old bay got into the first division of the Adare Manor Opportunity Handicap Hurdle as the third reserve and was sent off as a 25/1 shot.
