Anthony McCoy returned into your saddle to ride a winner on Quizical at the Pat Smullen Champions Hurry For Cancer Trials Ireland at the Curragh.
McCoy finished ahead of friend and rival Ruby Walsh.
From the St Leger, Search trained by Dermot Weld and ridden by Chris Hayes completed ahead of Kew Gardens .
A second triumph was indicated by victory on the three-year-old for Hayes in the race.
The 32-year-old previously triumphed on Voleuse De Cours.
Smullen, the nine-time Irish champion flat jockey who’s being treated for pancreatic cancer, persuaded McCoy and eight other former leading jockeys, such as Walsh and Kieren Fallon, to emerge out of retirement to share in the race that has increased over 2m Euro for cancer study. He couldn’t fulfil plans to ride himself.
Britain’s 20-time champion jump jockey who was powerful in a races, mcCoy, had said he would not race-ride again.
On precisely exactly the same card, the unbeaten colt Pinatubo, part of Sheikh Mohammed’s Godolphin horse racing and racing empire, again promoted his Classic credentials for 2020 having a remarkable success under jockey William Buick in the Vincent O’Brien National Stakes on Irish apartment racing’s Champions Weekend.
The colt, trained by Charlie Appleby and currently with five wins out of five starts, is a much stronger favourite for the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket in May after a nine-length romp.
The result was especially significant for Buick who missed the first four wins due to what’s described as’pole head-injury syndrome’ .
