The tapes will go up for the local point-to-point season at Garnons (HR4 7JX) this Sunday (6th March), when the Ross Harriers will be staging the first fixture in the Welsh Border Area for 2016.
Supporters have been hard at work at the picturesque estate, siting fences, paddocks and car parks, and the course looks splendid.
“The current going is good-to-soft with heavy patches, but drying so far” reported entries secretary, Verity Look. “We’re hopeful of a big crowd of spectators, and have re-arranged the car parking. It’s a wonderful opportunity to have a day out racing at such a beautiful venue.”
The first of the seven races is due off at 1pm, and entrance to the spectacular fixture is £10 per person, under 16’s and car parking free.
