AVONDHU (F) at Knockanard on 17 Feb 2019

First Race: 13.00

Number of Entries: 110

Admission: €8

The Avondhu Foxhound hosts their annual fixture of Knockanard this Sunday, a longstanding venue for the hunt who having been holding the meeting on this land since 1994.

A stiff test of stamina, the track is situated just outside Fermoy and with an entry of 110, Sunday should prove a great day out for everybody.

On Thursday we spoke to hunt secretary Dympna O'Meara who updated us on preparations:

“The course is ready for Sunday, we have a great cover of grass. It is the same right handed layout as usual and we will have our course inspection in the morning.

We were happy with a good entry of 110 horses, it is well up on last year.

There will be a chip van in attendance on the day and we will have our own hospitality tent. The local GAA club will also organise a tent with refreshments. It is great for people to get in out of the weather and get something to eat or drink.

The club are also organising a Cheltenham preview night in the coming weeks to raise funds for the Injured Jockeys Fund.

Unfortunately we won’t have any schooling after racing.”

Number of Entries: 110

Admission: €10 and U16's are free

Nenagh hosts racing in February for the first time this weekend, with the North Tipperary’s having traditionally hosted the fixture at the end of January.

The county Tipperary track is owned by hunt chairman Peter McCutcheon and spectators can look forward to a great days racing, with ace Hunter Chaser On The Fringe and former Irish Grand National winner Thunder And Roses being amongst the entries.

Seamus O'Slatara updated us on how preparations are going for the weekend:

“Everything looks good so far for Sunday. The track is in great condition, we have a super covering of grass and we are due some rain.

A lot of the horse are double entered, but we are happy with an entry of 110. The five-year-old maiden might even divide, as there is 34 entered.

We will have a couple of catering vans on site and are hopeful for a good days racing.”
