With seven very competitive races on the card, Friday is always a hugely popular evening race meeting, and a great way to kick off the Bank Holiday weekend. The first race starts at 5.10pm with all races generously sponsored by Guinness. Friday also plays host to the elegant and stylish ‘Friday’s Fair Lady Competition’.
The winner of this ‘Best Dressed’ competition will receive the unique prize of a Shop and Stay package courtesy of the Athlone Town Centre Shopping Centre and Sheraton Athlone Hotel. All seven races including the highlight, the €100,000 Guinness Handicap over 1 mile 3 furlongs 180 yards are live on At The Races.
We are delighted to have the generous support of Guinness for day five of our Summer Festival who have generously sponsored all races on the card. Thank you to Athlone Towncentre Shopping Centre for sponsoring Fridays Fair Lady competition.
