We have four runners into this evening’s Friends of Limerick Irish St Leger, the 87th running of the prestigious event. Below is a preview of the runners chances as taken from the IGB by Paul Cooney.
Liam Kennedy, racing manager at Limerick Greyhound Stadium, commented: “Saturday’s event is one of the biggest nights of the year here in Limerick Greyhound Stadium. It’s been high-quality and high-drama for the last three weekends and now 72 dogs have become six. I have no doubt that this weekend’s final will live up to its billing and the winner will certainly have earned their prize. It has been a special Leger this year with a community feel to it, thanks to the support of the hard working committee within the Friends of Limerick Greyhound Stadium group. I want to wish the very best of luck to all six finalists and their connections for Saturday.”
It was a determined fundraising campaign over recent months as the greyhound community, friends, and patrons of the sport came together in support of the Irish St Leger. The team behind it deserve special credit for their hard work to ensure great sponsorship whilst ensuring this Classic competition continues.
