Racing takes place at Roscommon on Tuesday, 4th August, 2009 with the first race at 5.50 pm. This is a mixed card with both flat and national hunt racing and features a very high class flat handicap over 1 and ½ miles for fillies only.
This meeting traditionally stages the first 3-year-old Maiden Hurdle of the year in Ireland and has produced some high class winners in the past. Weather-permitting this meeting usually attracts large crowds as punters follow horses that have run well at the Galway Festival the previous week.
Henry and The Usual Suspects will once again provide entertainment in the main bar after the last race. Roscommon is renowned for its friendly atmosphere and the craic follows on in the town afterwards.
Admission: Adults €13.00, students and OAPs €8.00. Attractive group discounts available. Enquiries: 087 2203288. Email: email@example.com.
