Chanelle Veterinary Leading Trainer Award 2015

For the 30th year Dermot Weld has won the Chanelle Veterinary Leading Trainer Plate.  In a nail-biting last day Dermot Weld stayed the course and retained his title.  After 5 wins, 9 seconds and 5 thirds across the week Dermot’s total tally was 57 points and so he took home a supply of Chanelle’s Animec Paste horse wormer and a cheque for €3,800.

Even though Willie Mullins had more winners over the week he was overtaken at the last by just 1 point and finished up the week with 8 great wins, 5 seconds and 1 third a total of 56 points, Willie collected his well-deserved runner-up prize of Animec Paste and a cheque for €1,200.

The Leading Trainer award is presented to the Trainer with the most points accumulated over the 7 days of the summer festival.  In the event of a tie then the trainer with the most wins is the champion.
