Roscommon Races stages its next fixture on Tuesday, the 6th of August, with the first of seven scheduled races due off at 5.40 pm.
It is an all National Hunt card, featuring three hurdle races, three chases and a bumper. This meeting stages the first three-year-old hurdle race of the season, namely the Railway Bar 3-Y-O Maiden Hurdle.
Roscommon Racecourse would like to thank its generous sponsors for the evening, including the Railway Bay, Paul Byron Shoes, Class Grass, JF Hanley, Michael Holland Tyres and the EBF. The best turned out prize in each race is sponsored by P&G Cards.
This meeting comes hot on the heels of the Galway Festival. Racing is thriving in this part of the country.
A spokesperson for Roscommon Races said: “We have been very lucky this year in that our attendances have been very solid and as it is the holiday time, we do hope to see plenty of people here over the coming weeks.
“Racecourse Manager Michael Finneran would like to thank everyone who has supported the racecourse in whatever way for our earlier meetings this year and we do hope to see them all again at this meeting”.
There is music in the main bar after the second last race with Billy Garvin.
