Well, here’s hoping the worst of the foulest weather I can ever remember is behind us! The track is drying out and it won’t be long before the grass picks its head up and starts growing.
As the Cheltenham Festival draws close, its exciting times for the racing enthusiast. Waiting for that horse you have been following all year, and sometimes for longer, to step up and win a major race. It has been great to see horses that have won races at Ffos Las go on to win at both Cheltenham and Aintree- Sprinter Sacre, At Fishers Cross, Oscar Whisky and Medinas to name but a few. As a fair, open and galloping track, Ffos Las dictates that good horses win here and the form is generally worth following.
We race again on Sunday 16th March- Super Irish Sunday when the band The Wild Murphys will be providing musical entertainment both before and after racing. A seven race card that usually draws plenty of runners should keep us all well entertained with the first race at 2.15pm.
Not too sure of the boss’s horses going to Cheltenham but hope good old Oscar Whisky can cover himself in glory if he runs. I think his jumping of fences has improved on every run this year, and consequently, so has his confidence. He’s an admirable type and deserves success.
See you for a Guinness on Super Irish Sunday
