Irish Champions Weekend - Day 1

The Grey Gatsby gave jockey Ryan Moore everything he had to win a titanic battle against Derby hero Australia in today's €1million QIPCO Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown. The prolific pair fought eye-to-eye all the way up the Leopardstown straight to be separated by just a neck on the line, the 7-1 shot The Grey Gatsby crowned victorious over 30-100 favourite Australia. Fiesolana gained a first Group 1 win for herself and trainer Willie McCreery by pinging through a gap like a scalded cat under a joyous Billy Lee to win the Coolmore Matron Stakes. Lee was calm and then courageous on the oldest runner in the race, sitting behind a wall of rivals then forcing her through a narrow opening when the moment came to win at 5-1, with 7-4 favourite Rizeena second and Tobann third at 40-1. Irish Champions Weekend Ambassador Victoria Smurfit was on hand this afternoon to judge the Champion Style & Elegance Competition with Bairbre Power from the Independent and Irish fashion designer Louise Kennedy. Liz Marr from Carlow was the lucky lady who was presented with a €5,000 voucher to spend in Louise Kennedys Merrion Square Store and a luxury break worth €3,000 in the 5 Star Powerscourt Hotel. The five fashion finalists along with the 5 finalists from Day 2 of Irish Champions Weekend at the Curragh will be entered into a draw to drive away in a brand new Jaguar XF. The winner will drive home in a new Jaguar XF which will be theirs for one year. The draw will take place after the feature race at the Curragh on Sunday, September 14th.
