The Point to Point races will be held this Saturday, October 5th.

THIS Saturday, October 5th, sees the start of The Route Hunt race season with their autumn Point To Point Races at Carrowclare Road, Myroe.

Racing starts at 1pm with six different races in which horses have the opportunity to achieve best turned out and/or race winner. The course is a very level track with no rise or decline of any significance. A little over seven furlongs in circumference.

This is a great training ground for race horses with Pride Of The Artic going on to win Latin Galway chase at Galway festival in 2012 and also Grade 3 novice chase in Tipperarry, Newbay Prop going on to win Paddy Power Chase at Leopardstown in 2007, Zemsky going on to win Cheltenham Foxhunters in 2011 and Simonsig going on to win at Cheltenham in 2013, all previous runners at Myroe.

The Route Hunt are grateful to all those who are sponsoring races and the volunteers who help in preparing the point to point course and the running of the point to point as well as all the landowners who give the use of their land for hunting throughout the season.

As well as horse racing and a host of bookmakers for those who like a bet, there will be a bar and a tea tent serving freshly prepared sandwiches, tray bakes, tea and coffee where friends and family both young and old can socialise and discuss the potential winners of the day.

If you are looking for a great day out, why not come along, bring your family and friends.

The first hunt of the season is on Saturday 12th October.
