Laois enjoyed a fantastic win at Punchestown Festival thanks to an alliance with Kildare.
Amidst all the talk of the retirement of Ruby Walsh, Ballybroker Bridge took La Touche Chase - the longest race in Ireland
It was a fantastic win for the owner James 'Jazz' McKeon from Portlaoise who is a member of the well known McKeon Stone family business in Stradbally.
The horse romped home by 25 lengths after a 4 miles and two furlongs marathon.
Ballybroker Bridge is trained in Kildare by Peter Maher.

This is a race that means so much to Peter Maher, who has a major fancy running here tomorrow too. pic.twitter.com/6D7ZhTfvlu— Racing TV (@RacingTV) May 2, 2019
