lstFollowing a three week break, the Leinster Summer Tour (LST) resumes today, (Friday) with the fifth round of the series taking place at Warrington Equestrian Centre in Co Kilkenny.
Thirty – two horses and riders have declared for today’s competition including a large group from host County Kilkenny. Ger O Neill, Marion Hughes and young rider Jack Hutchinson all line out for the “Cats”, along with Eddie Moloney, who jumps at his family’s home venue in Warrington.
With just ten points separating the top twenty on the league table and with seven rounds of the series still remaining, the battle for the overall title hangs very much in the balance, with round six of the LST taking place tomorrow Saturday at Wexford Equestrian Centre.
The Leinster Summer Tour (LST) is supported by the forthcoming Leinster region ‘Greyhound Night’ Fundraiser at Shelbourne Park, which takes place on Thursday 7th August during RDS Dublin Horse Show week.
Tickets cost €10 per person (children free), while you can also sponsor a race for €250 or sponsor a dog for €25
