Mother Nature hasn’t been kind in recent times, but racegoers here at Roscommon Racecourse and in the greater region will hope that the sun will re-emerge ahead of the penultimate meeting of the season which takes place on Monday next, September 4th.
The first race is off at 4.45 pm (Note change from 4:35pm).
General ground conditions were testing for a number of the meetings this year and the race committee and all associated with the course will be hoping that the weather will pick up for the last two meetings.
EBF are generously sponsoring four races on the evening, three flat and a handicap hurdle.
This meeting is a mixed card, made up of four flat races, two hurdle races and a bumper.
The re-fixing of one of the meetings has made a busy season even busier for Roscommon Racecourse, but Manager Michael Finneran is happy that the reschedule accommodates all parties.
“When you have no choice but to call off a meeting due to weather conditions, everybody has to change their plans. But we’re delighted to be able to facilitate sponsors, owners, trainers, racegoers and everyone involved to ensure that they don’t lose out when the weather dictates a change in the diary.”
“We have enjoyed a good year at the track and we hope that for the final couple of meetings that things will run smoothly. Of course, good weather always makes an evening at the races much more enjoyable and we hope that will be the case for the next meeting,” said Mr. Finneran.
As of 8:07am on Monday September 4th the going is as follows: Flat – Heavy, National Hunt – Heavy. The meeting will go ahead today after a track inspection at 8am. Very light showers this morning, clearing this afternoon.
