Thank you from the Claregalway Show. “Empty, bare and desolate” were the words used to describe race courses around Ireland during the week but it wasn’t the case at the Summerfield race course on Saturday night, March 3rd. With mats in place, all our horses went to post. Just one noticeable difference, instead of the familiar cries of “Apples, pears and ripe bananas”, we opted for mouth watering sandwiches, delicious fruit cake and tasty cocktail sausages and believe me they went down a treat.
Betting was excellent throughout the night. The bookies were kept very busy. The auction race proved to be a good vintage for Julie and Tom McKenna and they were presented with a beautiful Galway Crystal Decanter and glasses.
Our sincere thanks to all who supported us on the night, the sponsors, all who bought horses, donated spot prizes and all who helped in any way. Special thanks to Malachy Noone for his superb commentary and to Julie and Tom McKenna for providing the venue.
