Rocky the Seagull romps to victory in League of Ireland charity mascot race

After a slow start, Bray Wanderers’ runner won out at Naas Racecourse.

NAAS RACECOURSE HOSTED a test of speed between League of Ireland mascots yesterday.

Held in aid of the Irish Cancer Society, seven representatives — including Corky the Cheetah (Cork City), Leo the Lion (Limerick) and Hooperman (Shamrock Rovers) — took part in the inaugural novelty event.

Despite a poor start, Rocky the Seagull of Bray Wanderers, left the rest of the field for dead to claim victory. 

Unconfirmed reports that Leo is still running.
