Derrinstown Derby Trial

adminDerby Trials 20180 Comments

Leopardstown’s Derrinstown Derby Trial looked certain to be going the way of Aidan O’Brien, who went into the race with the first three in the betting – The Pentagon, Nelson and Delano Roosevelt – as well as a quite staggering record of 11 wins in the past 20 renewals of the race. However, it was Dermot Weld’s HAZAPOUR, from the family of Harzand, who triumphed earning quotes of 14/1 (from 50/1) for June’s showpiece at Epsom. Interestingly O’Brien has suggested that both The Pentagon and Delano Roosevelt could still be bound for the Derby despite defeat and both he and Dermot Weld expect improvement from their steeds.
