Day two of the Festival sees jumps action return once again to the track. The feature race of day two is the Grade 3 Imperial Call Chase run over three miles. Last year’s edition saw Fine Rightly stay on strongly and win by an impressive ten lengths margin for trainer Stuart Crawford and jockey Andrew Lynch.
The Grade C Easter Handicap Hurdle ran over two miles and three furlongs always attracts a competitive field and last year saw Last Goodbye win by a length for Ms. Liz Doyle with top claimer Donagh Meyler on pilot duty. With prize money of €30,000 up for grabs this year’s race will no doubt be as strong as ever.
On what is always a day to celebrate National Hunt Racing in Cork, last year saw plenty of success for local connections with winners on the day for trainers Willy Burke, Mick Winters and jockey Maxine O’Sullivan to name but a few.
Easter Sunday is the busiest day of the 3 day race meeting, with thousands of hopefuls adding lots of glamour as the racecourse hosts Most Stylish Sunday with thousands of euro worth of prizes on offer for the most stylish lady and gent on the day.
Not forgetting the little ones, there’s plenty of FREE entertainment laid on for them including an Easter Egg hunt, face painting & lots more.
