MICHAEL OWEN LEFT with a big cheque and a smile on his face after his horse Brown Panther pulled off a shock in the Irish St Leger.

The six-year-old was sent off a 14/1 outsider but ran away to win by six lengths and collect the €174,000 top prize at the Curragh.

The 9/10 favourite Leading Light was well beaten in second place, compounding a disappointing weekend for Aidan O’Brien who saw stable star Australia also turned over yesterday.
