Portarlington based Horse racing trainer Kieran Cotter secured another winner on the Irish Racing circuit yesterday when Erosandpsyche won the 5.10 at Tipperary returning at a price of 16/1.

It was the third run for the horse as it finally broke its maiden tag under the guidance of Declan McDonagh in the saddle.
