Sister Lola wins under Dylan Browne McMonagle© Photo Healy Racing
After seeing his colours carried to success earlier by Tyrconnell, trained by his daughter Sarah, Eddie Lynam was on the mark in the ownership and training ranks via Sister Lola in the Irishinjuredjockeys.com Handicap.
Shane Crosse rode Tyrconnell, and it was Dylan Browne McMonagle that did the steering on Sister Lola, who got in as a reserve.
Racing in mid-division, the successful Slade Power filly took a keen hold.
Eighth two furlongs out, the Lynam home-bred was pushed along and made progress a furlong and a half out.
Ridden to lead under a furlong out, Sister Lola stayed on well, strongly pressed close home to hold Sideshow Bob by a neck.
Above Us Only Sky finished well for third, half a length back.
“It was a bit disappointing last week. As you can see with the sweat of her there she can be very hard on herself,” said Lynam.
“We got a call that we were getting in today, I didn't think we would. I rolled the dice and got lucky. I took the 5lb off her to give her every chance and it worked out.
“It's been a nice day for us, two winners, one for Sarah and one for me.
“We always thought she wanted a mile but I think we've been wrong as her two seconds and her win have been over seven.
“I was worried when I saw the sweat of her down behind the stalls but it worked out.
“We bred her as well and the sire has been good to me.”
