Kilbeggan treble keeps Blackmore in the hunt to be champion jockey

Rachael Blackmore has now ridden a career best 91 winners in Ireland this season after landing a treble at Kilbeggan this evening.ย 

The Queen of Cheltenham and Aintree Grand National historic maker now trails champion jockey title leader Paul Townend by four victories with the Punchestown Festival on the horizon.

The Cathal Don, An Taibhse and Cavalry Master all provided winners at the Midlands venue for the team of Blackmore and trainer Henry de Bromhead.

"It's phenomenal. I'm in a very lucky position getting to ride all these horses," the Tipperary native told Racing TV after this evening's card in Westmeath.ย  "It's a long week ahead and we won't be thinking about that too much."

Townend is a major doubt for next week's festival at Punchestown but there are reports he could wear a special protective boot in order to be able to defend his lead in the championship.

Next up for Blackmore is a trip to Sandown tomorrow to partner Ornua in the Grade 1 Celebration Chase and Plan Of Attack in the Grade 3 Gold Cup Handicap Chase.
