We have a top class card of National Hunt Racing to look forward to on Tuesday – 4 hurdle races, 2 steeplechases and 1 bumper with the first Race set to start at 5.45pm.
Ireland’s leading national hunt jockeys will be in attendance. The first race on the card will be the Railway Bar 3 year old hurdle race. This is the first hurdle race for 3 year olds in Ireland and has thrown up some very useful performances in the past. Another local sponsor The John F. Hanley Group will sponsor what will be a very competitive hurdle on the card. Martinstown Stud, which is owned by J.P McManus, are also sponsoring a race.
Weather permitting, this can be the biggest meeting held in Roscommon in the year. Not only does it attract quality horses it also attracts a holiday atmosphere in the crowd.
Roscommon Racecourse can boast to being the least expensive for admission Tickets and group bookings are also welcome. There will be free pony rides for the children on the day. Ponies supplied by Mount Cashel Stables.
There will be live music in the Main Bar after 2nd last race with Henry and The Usual Suspects. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to meet up with old friends and perhaps make new ones. ‘Come for the racing – stay for the craic’.
FREE Taxi service from the Taxi Rank, Market Square, Roscommon to Racecourse from 4.30pm to 5.30pm. Also return taxi leaving Roscommon Racecourse approximately half an hour after the last race.
