Crowds watch on in Galway

Rovetta - a horse of Ireland and Leinster rugby player Sean O'Brien and the Capel Street Syndicate - just won the third race in Galway today at a price of 33/1.

The reserve horse's owners didn't even know until 10.30am this morning that the horse was going to be in the race, little did they know she'd claim the 6.10pm Tote Irish EBF Mares Handicap Hurdle. The horse is trained by Jessica Harrington. 

They all plan on meeting up in the Boar's Head soon to celebrate, the video above is of some of the other members of the syndicate giving a shout out to Sean - who couldn't make it to Galway.
