Dream result for Brian Ellison with 1-2-3 in Galway feature

Sun 6 Aug 2017

Last year's winner Dream Walker saw off stable companion Baraweez to provide trainer Brian Ellison with a fourth successive victory in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF 'Ahonoora' Handicap on the final day of the Galway Festival.

Baraweez claimed back-to-back renewals of the 100,000 euro prize in 2014 and 2015 and was fifth behind Dream Walker 12 months ago.

Both horses came into the seven-furlong contest in good form once again, with Dream Walker having been third and Baraweez sixth in Tuesday's BMW Mile.

Tithonus, winner of both the Rockingham Handicap and the Scurry Handicap at the Curragh last month, led the field into the home straight, but he was soon swamped.

Ellison's Be Kool hit the front in the final furlong, but he was claimed by his two stablemates in the dying strides and it was 7-1 shot Dream Walker who claimed top honours under a jubilant Chris Hayes.

Baraweez was just half a length away in second, with Be Kool rounding off a remarkable one-two-three for the North Yorkshire-based trainer.

Canary Row was best of the Irish in fourth, just ahead of the BMW Mile winner and 9-4 favourite Riven Light, who encountered traffic problems during his bid to complete the big-race double.
