McHale Raceday, the richest raceday at Ballinrobe Racecourse, takes place tomorrow.
Going to post at 4.30pm, the all-jumps card is a hugely popular event and to mark the occasion, the graded McHale Mayo National has now an increased prize-fund of €80,000, making it Ballinrobe’s most valuable race in 2023.
The McHale Mayo Hurdle of €30,000 and the McHale Tiger Roll Beginners Steeplechase remain very competitive races.
McHale Raceday takes place on day one of the two-day May Festival. Tuesday, May 30, is an all jumps card featuring the Monroe’s Live John Monroe Memorial Handicap Hurdle of €22,000. The first race goes to post at 5pm.
Ballinrobe racecourse manager John Flannelly has been giving more details to Midwest Sport.
