So the count down is on to the Fairyhouse Easter Racing Festival, a racing festival I have looked forward to since I was a child as it was an annual family outing and my first real experience of horse racing! You could say it was the inspiration to my career of fifty years (and counting!).
Runners to look forward to are Lignou in the Fairyhouse RYBO Handicap Hurdle (Grade A) on Saturday 3rd April. For Easter Monday, we have six entries in the Fairyhouse Boylesports Irish Grand National Chase (Grade A). They are; Tout Est Permis, Valdieu, Brace Yourself, School Boy Hours, Dream Conti & Eurobot. It will be interesting to see if Tiger Roll goes for this race, and the effect it will have on the entries. I’m concerned that at this moment in time School Boy Hours might not get in to the race, but we’ll find out soon enough! Other entries will be made tomorrow including Thedevilscoachman for this weekend also, all going well!
