Balmont’s Irish Ace
Promising Irish two-year-old Caso Do Lago, a son of Lynward Park Stud’s Balmont, gained his second successive win when taking the Dundalk Stadium Handicap (five furlongs) at Dundalk on Friday. (October 25)
Caso Do Lago, prepared by Ed Lynham, who also trains Balmont’s crack international sprinter Balmont Mast, led to win by 1 3/4-lengths as the 7/2 second favourite.
The US-bred 2/1 favourite Amygala, by Van Nistelrooy and who had been placed second at his previous three starts, was a well beaten fifth.
Caso Do Lago, from Dasha, by Kyllachy, had won the Crown Plaza Handicap (seven furlongs) at Dundalk on October 11.
