The Horseware/TRM National Grand Prix at Ballinasloe proved to be a showcase of talented local riders and the Cruising line as they dominated the top placings last Saturday. Taking the win in the €5,000 Devenish Nutrition-sponsored class was Galway rider Damien Griffin riding Tabby.

Owned by Pamela Donaghy, the 11-year-old gelding by Captain Clover out of a Cruising mare Majestic Cruise has been a loyal servant for Griffin with a series of good results from the aged classes up to Premier Series level. Among their good results was a second place finish in the Cork Premier Series in 2014.
