Aileen Persse from the Kilmoganny Hunt, gives us an update on what ground conditions are like at the Mainstown track and what’s on offer ahead of their fixture next Sunday 1st December.
“Preparations are going great and the committee are working very well together. We walked the track during the week, and it is in good order, with a fine covering of grass and the ground conditions are excellent.
“Our feature race of the day is the ITM Ladies Open race which we have had since we began our fixture back in 2015. We also will have novice riders’ race which will be the last race on the card for six-year-old and upwards geldings.
“On the day the Hunt tea tent will be open to Landowner sponsors and any donations made to the tea tent will be given to the injured jockey’s fund. We will also have a tea/coffee van along with a chip van onsite.
"Whytemount Stud, sponsors of the fourth race, have generously decided to give a nomination of their Stallion Feel Like Dancing to the winning owners of the five-year-old and upwards mares maiden."
Following rain over the Weekend the ground is described by the hunt as yielding to soft/soft in places
