Free admission to Roscommon Races on Monday next

There will be free admission to next Monday’s meeting of Roscommon Races (4th of September) as the gate has been kindly sponsored by the INPBA (the Irish National Professional Bookmakers Association).

It’s a much-appreciated gesture by the on-course bookmakers, who can always be relied upon to ‘put back’ into Roscommon. It is hoped there will be a bumper attendance as we near the end of our racing season locally.

The Irish EBF are once again generous sponsors at Roscommon, and this support is very much appreciated by the committee.

Meanwhile, the flat jockeys championship has developed into a four-way battle, with Colin Keane and Billy Lee first and second in the table, with Ryan Moore and Gary Carroll not that far off the pace-setters.

Ryan Moore already paid a visit to Roscommon earlier this year – when he won the Lenebane Stakes for his boss, Aidan O’Brien – and it would be great to see him back riding here again on the 4th for what is likely to be a great day’s racing.

All 2023 meetings in Roscommon been very well attended. There are just a few meetings left to run, so don’t miss out on the chance to see some of the very best sportsmen and women in action at Roscommon, and remember, thanks to the NPBA, it’s free admission for all this Monday! There is music in the bar after the second last race.

Come for the racing; stay for the craic.
