Famous Name: Wins at Leopardstown for seventh time

Seventh course win for Weld stalwart

2-13 favourite Famous Name justified his cramped odds by winning the Heritage Stakes for the second successive season at Leopardstown.

It was a seventh course win for the Dermot Weld stable stalwart who quickened clear from the turn for home.

Finicius finished strongly down the centre of the track but Famous Name was never in any danger of being caught, keeping up the gallop to score by two and a half lengths.

"Famous Name is a model of consistency around here and has now won six stakes races at Leopardstown," said Weld.

"He did it today as expected and Pat (Smullen) said he took a blow a furlong out so should improve from today's run.

"He is a joy to train and the aim for this year is to win a Group One with him. I'll speak to Lord Grimthorpe (owner Khalid Abdullah's racing manager) before making a plan."
