Ahane GAA & Bentekes Bocko claim Con and Anne Kirby Memorial

| April 11, 2017

Bentekes Bocko produced yet another stunning display of early speed to capture the €80,000 Con and Annie Kirby Memorial at a packed Limerick on Saturday night. It was a lively market on the night,  but Bentekes Bocko closed the 2-1 favourite to take the prize while Drive On Tipp was a 5-2 second favourite.

From the outset it was clear that Bentekes Bocko was on track to claim the €80,000 prize. The son of Tullymurry Act and Tullig Paula has posted some terrific sectionals on his unbeaten passage through the competition and he maintained his consistency with a slick 1.27 effort to lead from the start.
