Upcoming Races and Updates


We have a busy weekend ahead, with racing locally at Limerick where we have a total of 9 runners on the day.
False Economy will run in the 2m conditions hurdle and Ruby Walsh, who has won on him, rides him.  A big run is expected.

Gigginstown inmates Ballysteen and Crash also run – Ballysteen in the Novice Hurdle.  He showed a return to form when finishing 3rd on his last run and it is hoped he will go closer on Sunday.
Crash runs in the Grade 2 Novice Chase – both of these are ridden by Davy Russell.
Previous course winner Friendly Society runs in the Martinstown Opportunity Handicap Chase and stable jockey Adrian Heskin rides him.
Debt to Society, Made For Sharing and Sherco Sports complete the team on the day.

Craigs Dream and Lend A Hand Son run in the Mid West Spina Bifida ‘Back In The Saddle Again’ Charity race.  Craigs Dream will be ridden by Michael’s son Michael Jnr and Lend A Hand Son ridden by Michael’s other son, Paul.  It is hoped the event will attract a large crowd, as it features some of racings greats including Jim Dreaper, Philip Fenton and Jim Culloty, to name just a few.  All proceeds of the event will go to the Mid West Spina Bifida Association in Limerick and there will also be a raffle on the day aswell as an auction which features some great items including the signed number cloth worn by Big Bucks when winning his record breaking 4th World Hurdle.

Racing for the coming week is at Thurles on Tuesday and Clonmel on Thursday, and we hold entries at both meetings.
There is also a point to point at Inch on Wednesday where we hope to have runners also.
