first_imgALL eyes might be on Galway this week, but Donegal jockey Martin Harley has been the toast of the biggest meet in England this week – Glorious Goodwood.He helped Bungleinthejungle, a 14-1 shot, produce a storming late rally to nail 2-1 favourite Morawij right on the line.His chances appeared bleak after Morawij kicked three-quarters of a length clear inside the final furlong, but the Mick Channon-trained colt refused to be denied and Harley battled back in the most valiant fashion to get the verdict by a head. It was a third Molecomb success for Channon, and a long overdue Group success in Britain for part-owner Christopher Wright, who used to regularly dine at racing’s top table.“That’s my first Group winner in England for an awful long time,” he said. “I’m thrilled.”Martin Harley, who is enjoying a magnificent season as stable jockey to Channon, said: “They went very fast early on, but Bungle Inthejungle sees out five furlongs very well. He’s tough, with a big heart, and battled on really well.“This year is going great, and big thanks to the boss, who hassupported me with plenty of rides.” From what we hear, there’s a fair few punters around Letterkenny celebrating – having put a few quid on the 14-1 shot.  GLORIOUS GOODWOOD FOR DONEGAL JOCKEY was last modified: August 1st, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:GLORIOUS GOODWOOD FOR DONEGAL JOCKEYlast_img
