Puppy named Meath’s Top Dog

Jockey Robbie ‘Puppy’ Power was last night named Meath’s Sportsperson of the year for 2017 at an awards ceremony at Knightsbrook Hotel in Trim.

The Moynalvey man enjoyed great success during 2017 alongside the Jesssica Harrington trained Sizing John, capturing a triple crown of Gold Cups at Leopardstown, Cheltenham and Punchestown.

There was double reason to celebrate in the Power household as Robbie’s father Cpt.Con Power received the Hall of Fame award on the night.

Puppy Powers His Way Home To Fagans

Gold Cup winning jockey Robbie ‘Puppy’ Power made his way home to his local Fagans Pub last night to celebrate his success with friends and family only hours after completing an amazing double at Prestbury Park.

Power claimed his first Gold Cup victory onboard the Jessica Harrington trained Sizing John at odds of 7/1 and followed that up with a fantastic win in the last, getting the 10/1 shot Rock The World up to win.

Congratulations to all winning connections including Sizing John’s owners the Potts family.
