Kerry Jockey Blows Minds With Miracle Recovery In Ride Of The Year Contender

Kerry Jockey Blows Minds With Miracle Recovery In Ride Of The Year Contender

Robin Des Mana won the 2:35 at Clonmel on Thursday afternoon. The 7/2 favourite had Jack Kennedy aboard. Though, for a few moments, it looked as though that was not going to be the case.

On the first lap of the two-mile chase, Kennedy looked like he had fallen from his ride. Hanging off the side of Robin Des Mana at one point, Kennedy miraculously managed to remount. It was a remarkable show of resolve from the young Kerryman.

In a race, as it was put by the commentator, which was full of "thrills and spills", Kennedy managed to hold off Kevin Brouder aboard 50/1 short Kiera Royale in the final straight.
