Slatequarry Sasha brought off a unique Dublin double when Paula Howard’s mare followed up her winning appearance in the previous day’s The Irish Field Breeders Championship by winning the Coote Cup broodmare championship.

In fact, her win in a superb lightweight broodmare class was part of the unique sight of three Ghareeb mares in the top-three, as Slatequarry Sasha lined up alongside Patrick Wafer’s Parkmore Evita (second) and Stephen Culliney’s Kilkeany Mystic (third).
