Another No1 for Ronan as horse romps home

LIFE is certainly a rollercoaster for singer Ronan Keating. After the turmoil in his personal life last year, it was all smiles from Ronan and wife Yvonne last night.
The happy couple were present to see Great Huzzar capture the Irish Stallion Farms EBF (C & G) Maiden at Roscommon Races.
Ridden by Wayne Lordan and running in the colours of the Bucket List syndicate, of which Ronan is a member, Great Huzzar landed a nice gamble for the singer and his pals.
The three-year-old was backed into 9/4 and readily accounted for the strongly fancied Tashqeel, pulling away in the final furlong.
The winner was shouted home with gusto by Ronan and Yvonne.
"I was shaking in the stands watching the race. It was better than having a number one record," said a happy Ronan.
