Galway Races October 2010

October Bank Holiday Galway Race meeting

Last Monday 25th October a group of about twenty of us attended the final Race Meeting of 2010 in Ballybrit, Galway. It was a most enjoyable occasion.
The weather was dry but cold. We were well-protected from the weather, though, as we were located in the Panoramic Restaurant at the Millennium Stand. Dinner was excellent and we could place our bets from the comfort of our seats. Standing up we had a full view of the race course. A running commentary was also provided keeping us all up to date. The excitement towards the end of each race was wonderful as everyone cheered his own horse all the way to the finishing line. We won some, we lost some but none of us returned to Ballinasloe with any major winnings or losses!
