Here at Ffos Las we round off the biggest week in the jump racing calendar in 2014 with our meeting on Sunday (16 MARCH). It’s ‘Super Irish Sunday’ – the eve of St Patrick Day – with live entertainment before and after racing from The Wild Murphy’s, the three-piece group who play a mix of traditional and not so traditional Irish music! We hope many Irish visitors to Britain for the Cheltenham Festival may also drop in for another exciting day’s racing as they make their way home. We have already been a stopping off point for horses from the Emerald Isle on their way to the National Hunt Festival. Racing gets under way at 2.15pm.
Anyone who has read the blog before will know how I often mention one of the boss’s horses, Whisper. He’s already been a good winner of several races but surpassed this by winning The Coral Cup at the Cheltenham Festival this week. He’s a star and with 25-1 available in the morning of the race and a starting price of 16-1, I certainly will be giving him a pat and a few polo mints when I see him next.
Hope to see you at the track soon.
