The winner of the Peter Burke Memorial A3/A4 525 Final was TAHINA BLUE last Saturday night at Dundalk.
It ended up a battle between the two fancied dogs in trap one Marinas Joker who could not hold off the fast finishing Tahina Blue in trap three in a clock of 28.74 winning by a margin of a half a lenght.
The winner picked up a chunky cheque of €2,250 for owner Jason Croarkin while second placed dog picked up €900.00 for owner Marina McKeown. Both dogs sired was the past derby winner Good News.
The Burke family turned out in large numbers to support the event.
Pictured above at the presentation are Peter Burkes Family ; Doreen Burke, Petra Burke, Margot Burke, Rebecca & John Bray, Colm Flanagan, Jay Burke Flanagan, and Milly Burke Flanagan, presenting to Vera Croarkin, Cathal Croarkin and Frank Barron.
Congratulations to all winning connections.
