Upcoming runners


Our runners for this upcoming weekend include False Economy who will run at Dundalk on Friday night.  He will have come on from his first run of the season a fortnight ago and will hopefully go close this time.
A New Story is among the entries for the weekend – he holds an entry at both Fairyhouse and Naas – he will most likely go to Naas for his prep run before heading back to Cheltenham for the Cross Country Chase in a few weeks.

This weeks point to point is the East Clare Hunt at Killaloe – we have just two entries, Milan Gold and recent winner Dizzy Rascal.

Ex point to point winner for us, River Maigue, had his first run for new trainer Nicky Henderson at Ascot last Saturday when he finished 3rd in the bumper there.  He is one to keep an eye on.

Preparations are now underway for a charity race being organised for April 1st at Limerick Racecourse in aid of the Mid West Spina Bifida Association, of which Michael is a patron.  The race is for ex jockeys and the line up includes 3 time Gold Cup winning jockey Jim Culloty, Arthur Moore, Jim Dreaper, Tony Martin, Gordon Elliott and Kevin O’Ryan – to name just a few.  It is the only meeting in Ireland on the day, and as well as being a top class national hunt card, it is also family fun day at the track, so it is hoped a large crowd will attend and show support to this very worthy cause.
