The Galway Festival

01.08.12

The Galway Festival is taking place this week  - we have 2 runners tomorrow – Run With The Wind runs in the Galway Hurdle and Gate Please in the bumper. Run WithThe Wind – who won well on his last start at Killarney – will be ridden by Adrian Heskin.  The Galway Hurdle is always a hugely competitive race so we are hoping for a good show from him.  Gate Please will be ridden by Derek O Connor, and he wont be without his chance provided the rain stays away.

We have a few entries for the weekend including Friendly Society, Dancing Tornado and Dingaling.  Recent Limerick winner Cuteasafox also holds an entry at Galway on Sunday.
Racing on Monday is at Cork, where we have a number of entries including the great veteran – A New Story, who will possibly be aimed at another race in the Crystal Cup series in France in September.

As we head into August, all the winter horses are now back into training for their upcoming winter campaigns, and we expect to be entering many of them in the coming weeks.
