In recent years the annual Wicklow Hunt point-to-point races have been successfully run at Fairwood, Tinahely, with the goodwill and support of the Shillelagh & District Hunt, and the 2019 autumn renewal takes place next Sunday.
Seventy-seven entries have been received for the six-race card and the first competitive contest for the four-year-old maidens will be underway at 12.30 pm. It is going to be a cold day (maximum temperatures not expected to exceed 7 degrees) and conditions on the track are expected to be ‘soft’. However, good racing is guaranteed and the organisers deserve good support, so wrap up well and come racing on Sunday.

1 pm; Doran W. O’Toole & Company Solicitors 5 and 6 years old maiden race. (8 entries).
