John Thomas McNamara recorded his 600th point-to-point success at Kilfeacle this afternoon aboard the Michael O’Hare trained Montana Slim.

The four-time track winner made all the running and ran out a comfortable winner of the Open Lightweight beating the Edward O’Grady trained Solstice Knight by twenty lengths.

McNamara has also enjoyed plenty of success on the racecourse and he won the National Hunt Chase at the Cheltenham Festival last year aboard Teaforthree.
