The draw for the opening round of the Boylesports Irish Derby was completed this morning at Shelbourne Park which means the biggest race of the year is right around the corner!
We have 15 runners entered this year so have two very busy, and very exciting nights ahead of us! Thursday will see us with 5 runners before we return on Saturday evening with another 10! We’ve had a bit of success over the last couple of years, but have never won the Irish Derby, which we would love to do. The closest we came was with Cabra Buck who finished second to Slippery Robert in 2013.
We’ll be creating a dedicated Irish Derby Page with all of our runners’ videos (streaming permitting) and up to the minute news from the Competition. The opening round’s cards can be downloaded below.
