River Media – whose titles include the Letterkenny Post, Donegal Post, Inish Times and Kildare Post – was proud to be on board to sponsor one of the big races in Naas this evening.

The inaugural Kildare Post Maiden proved to be a great race with “Red All Star”  too hot to handle for the rest of the ten strong field.

The 9/4 shot was ridden clear from two furlongs out in this six furlong contest and stayed on well under pressure from “Insearchofadream” to win by a length. Jim Bolger’s “So Focussed” ran on well to finish third.

“Elusive Sally” (50/1) was fourth ahead of “Le Vie Este Bella” while the favourite “Albert The Bold (6/4)  came in a disappointing 9th for Aidan O’Brien having been upset in the stall, and was never in contention.

The going was certainly firm and the winning time of one minute 9.7 seconds was 1.48 seconds faster than the course average.

River Media  Managing Director Padraig O’Dwyer is a keen supporter of Irish Racing.

Tonight’s meeting in Naas attracted a good crowd in great sunshine and there was some super racing.
