Odds-on favourite and 20-1 shot victorious in first day of Races

THE GALWAY RACES got off to a flying start, with twists and turns in abundance during the first day.

And it wasn’t long before the peculiarities of the Galway Races began to manifest.

The first race of  this year’s festival saw an odds-on favourite cross the finish line first, while the second race saw Pateen, a 20-1 shot, leave the bookies with smiles on their faces.

Trainer Shane Ryder was delighted with the win.

“It has always been a dream to win in Galway,” Ryder said.
