Kiltale trainer Ger Lyons was smiling in Dubai yesterday evening when Lily's Angel made a winning debut on her first start at Meydan.
Lily's Angel, owned by Clodagh Mitchell who lives near Trim, was winning for the fourth time in-a-row after winning twice at Dundalk and also at Leopardstown in 2012.
Gary Carroll, a grandson of the late Frankie Carroll from Kildalkey, partnered Lily's Angel to success in the Longines Saint Imier Handicap.
A delighted trainer tweeted this morning:
