GAIN Railway Stakes (Group 2) 6f, 2yo
COLIN KEANE bounced back from a nasty fall earlier on the card at the Curragh to win the Group 2 Railway Stakes on Medicine Jack for trainer Ger Lyons.
Keane had taken a tumble in the second race when his mount Elusive Heights was brought down in a dramatic incident at the furlong pole, but the rider showed he had suffered no ill effects when driving Medicine Jack home in front just over an hour later.
Norfolk Stakes fourth Peace Envoy, who was Aidan O’Brien’s leading contender, finished half a length behind the gallant winner in second, while sole British raider Dream Of Dreams finished a length and a half further back in third.
