LETTERKENNY JOCKEY Dylan Browne-McMonagle celebrated his 200th winner at the weekend.
Reigning three times Dingle Champion Browne-McMonagle had to settle for runner-up spot at this year’s Dingle Racing Festival behind high flying Co Antrim rider Sam Ewing.
But it was a weekend to celebrate for the Donegal teenager, who clocked up another milestone in the form of his 200th winner.
Dylan made it 199 when he sent the aptly named Remember Me to the front around the home turned for an easy success in the 14 furlong open.
The appropriately named Baby Browne gave the young champion rider his 200th winner to rapturous applauses in the 153cm pony race.
On Saturday afternoon, Five Stone Of Lead made it a treble for Dylan over the weekend as she quickened away for an easy win in the 148cm pony race. His four-timer was completed as Unhinged swooped to victory in the 143cm pony race.
On Sunday afternoon, Browne Mc Monagle was out of luck in the Dingle Derby but at the close of the meeting, when the silverware was been presented, Tommy O’Callaghan interviewed the modest Co Donegal jockey as he announced it was his last Dingle as a rider there was very emotional scenes by quite a few, as well as the likeable 16 year old maestro.
There are just a few meetings left now for the National Champion before he makes his move to the next chapter in racing the biggest stage of all where he will be joining a big stable to further his talent and try an go all the way to the top.Tags:
