Roscommon to host two-day race meeting



€1,200 for Best Dressed Lady on July 8th


Roscommon hosts an attractive two-day meeting on Monday and Tuesday, the 8th and 9th of July, with the first race on both days off at 6 pm.

  Monday is Ladies Day, which is once again generously sponsored by SuperValu, Co. Roscommon. The lucky winner will receive a first prize of €1,200, while the other nine finalists will each get €100. 

  Celebrity judge on the evening will be Gretta Peters, fashion blogger and columnist.

  The €60,000 Listed Lenabane Stakes is Monday’s feature, and during the evening, the new building at the racecourse will be officially opened by Brian Kavanagh of Horse Racing Ireland.

  Tuesday is an all national hunt card and there are bound to be plenty of pointers on view that night for the upcoming Galway Festival.
