Halford's Lily Of Kenmare was his sole winner of the evening at the Co Louth venue today, moving him 11 winners clear of nearest pursuer Eddie Lynam (winner-less tonight). Jim Bolger finished third on 20 wins.
The Jockeys' Title was a little more dramatic with Lily Of Kenmare's rider Gary Carroll replacing Shane Foley who was suspended for the final day's racing. However Wayne Lordan failed to ride a winner from his five rides, meaning the pair shared a perpetual prize and a €1,500 donation to the charity of their choice.
The Colm Murphy trained Aladdins Cave bravely defied top weight to win the concluding Irish Flat race for 2012, the Crowne Plaza Jockey & Trainer Awards Handicap at Dundalk this evening, scoring under Pat Smullen.
