It’s been a great year for racing at Roscommon and the curtain will come down today Monday when the final fixture of the season takes place.
Racing gets underway at 2.05pm, and there is an eight-race all national hunt card. The feature event is the e40,000 Grade 3 Ballymore Properties Irish EBF Novice Steeplechase.
The final fixture of the year will be a significant one, as it will the last meeting that the present building at the road end will be used at Roscommon.
A major revamp will commence once Monday’s meeting concludes. This work has been in the pipeline for a number of years, but due to financial constraints, the board were not in a position until now, to proceed with this work.
The new structure will add greatly to the facilities for service providers and the jockeys at Roscommon Racecourse.
There is music in the main bar after the second last race with Henry & The Usual Suspects.
As usual there is a competition on our Racecard for a free bet.
