€30,000 SPONSORED RACE AT KILBEGGAN NEXT MONDAY JUNE 20TH
When it comes to dress, Royal Ascot is all about top hats & tails, but at the last Kilbeggan races it was more about tee shirts, shorts, summer dresses and scorching sunshine. Interestingly, in 1991 Royal Ascot had a jackpot carry over of £53,000, but Kilbeggan had a carry over at their June meeting that rose to £66,000! Kilbeggan cannot promise that it will beat Royal Ascot at the races next Monday 20th June starting at 6PM, but with four sponsored races the racing will be competitive and it should be a great evening.
FOUR SPONSORED RACES
The highlight of the meeting will be the Carmel Fay Memorial Handicap Hurdle of €30,000 over 2 miles 3 furlongs. , which is generously sponsored by the Fay Family. Last year it was won by P.G.Fahey’s Do Try Dolly 10/3F, who was a course specialist. Already this year course specialists like Down Under (3 Kilbeggan wins) have won a number of races at Kilbeggan, so the best advice is to watch out for them on your race card. The Mullingar & North Westmeath Vintners Association are sponsoring the novice hurdle of €13,000, which has produced some good horses in the past. The Hurley Family Handicap Hurdle is again sponsored by local, Pat McCormack who has a long association with Kilbeggan Races going back to Tom McCormack, who was Secretary of the committee for 20 years. The Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Handicap Chase is also another very competitive race.
Admission to the races is €13, Special Family Discount Package €20; Adults with Children under 16 free. The New Special Discounted Summer Part Pack includes an Admission Ticket, €5 Drink Voucher, €5 Food Voucher, and a Free Race Card at just €20 per person for a group of €10 or more.
A LOT OF FIRSTS AT KILBEGGAN?
The last Kilbeggan Races had a number of firsts when Denise Marie O’Shea won with Supreme Vinnie the first horse in her yard; All Hell Let Loose won the novice chase in his first run for Henry de Bromhead; and Buonarotti Boy was trained by Gordon Elliott for the Barstool Prophets Syndicate (which includes his own family) and their first ever winner was with Toran Road at Kilbeggan in 2007.There was also great joy when local breeders Peter & Ann Downes bred Are You Kidding the winner of the bumpers It should be a great evening of racing & entertainment at Kilbeggan next Monday and if you have never been there, why not make it another first and meet new friends. Don’t forget it starts at 6PM
