In front: Shane Foley and Parkers Hill ride to victory

Local trainer Leanne Breen was celebrating yesterday as Irish racing returned from its coronavirus-enforced absence.

The Co Down rookie enjoyed a fine result as Parkers Hill, with Shane Foley on board, powered home to claim the second division of the Chartered Accounts handicap at Naas.

That paved the way for Foley to enjoy a double prior to the rider also landing the feature on Punita Aurora (22/1) trained by his boss Jessica Harrington to complete a hat-trick on the opening session of the season.
