Lurgan part owners of racehorse Dinkum Diamond were in the money last Saturday after the sprinter clinched third place in a top race at Royal Ascot.

The five-year-old colt was cheered across the line by the five man syndicate in the six furlong Wokingham Stakes Heritage Handicap at odds of 22/1.

Jockey Catherine Gannon’s superb ride earned the Lurgan owners, listed as Eight Star Syndicate, a prize of £13,980.

Trained by H. Candy, Dinkum Diamond has a record of four wins, three seconds and seven thirds in her 24 race career which is certainly giving the locals plenty to cheer about.
