Ciara Flynn on Power Drive: Proud occasion for Flynn family as Longford jockey records landmark first winner

It was a great day at Dundalk on Wednesday for the Colehill-based Flynn family, as ten-pounds claimer Ciara showed tremendous enterprise when steering Power Drive, trained by her father Paul, to score in the first division of Irishinjuredjockeys.com Handicap over a mile and two furlongs.

It was a landmark first winner for the rider, who got her licence in June and she did it in style, establishing a four-length advantage two furlongs out on the son of Medicean and that was enough to keep the chasing pack at bay, a half-length being the distance at the line.
