Portmarnock 23rd Sept 2018

This Weekends Racing Notice

After close of entries today, it has been decided to run a one day meeting instead of two as originally planned this coming Sunday with the first race at 1pm.

The programme will include heats & final for pacers, 4 Year Old Finals, and straight races for all trotters as well as top FFA’s for both pacers and trotters. It was decided on the grounds of a horse welfare issue not to run a heats & final for trotters as would have been racing twice over 1.5 miles.

Anyone who has entered trotters and who now would like to put a claimer on them, can do so up to 1pm tomorrow afternoon.
