Winning streak continues for Laois trainer following Dundalk success

A Laois based horse racing trainer continued his winning streak recently with success in Dundalk.

Portarlington’s Kieran Cotter notched his 14th winner of a remarkable season on Friday night in Dundalk.

His charge, Pulse of Shanghai, claimed the Story Of Dundalk Stadium Book Handicap DIV I at odds of 7/1.

The four-year-old scooped the €6,000 first prize in the process.

Speaking to IrishRacing.com, Cotter said: “His last few runs were a bit disappointing for the work he can do at home.

“He won his maiden in Down Royal last year when Jim Ryan trained him and he beat a good horse of ours Strong Johnson over five (furlongs).

“We were trying to ride a race on him up to this and today we said we’d just send him forward as he always seemed to be finishing well. He probably should have won here a few weeks ago when he got into trouble in behind.

“There was no excuses today, a good man on board and out in front and go.

“Jim Ryan and Dr Chah are good supporters of ours. They sent us a handful of horses so it’s great they are winning for them now.

“He’ll ply his trade up here for the winter.”

Cotter will be looking to continue his good run as he has entries in races at The Curragh and Dundalk later this week.
