Kilflynn Coursing Club kicked off the new season with a terrific meeting last weekend and all associated with the fixture can feel extremely proud of a job well done. The hare stock was off the highest order, fit, healthy and full of running. The big winner on the day was Rosegreen trainer Kevin Barry, who captured the Reserve Derby Trial Stake and the Derby ticket on offer, as well as claiming the feature of the weekend the Denis Leen Memorial Cup with the long odds favourite Mad Mans Game.

Without doubt the most popular leg of Barry’s treble came when Kilmurly (NewInn Wonder/ Knockout Glory) claimed the Reserve Derby Trial Stake for The Glory Syndicate which is headed up by renowned Tarbert publican Thomas Coolahan.
