Over the past few years, the Cesarewitch has produced some stunning racing around Mullingar.

Last year’s decider was won in wonderful fashion by Amazing Alice and we can start to get excited about this year’s competition as it starts in just four weeks.

The Mullingar racing office are planning to run a couple of additional trial sessions to accommodate potential entries and bookings can be made through the racing office or online. These trial sessions are scheduled for Saturday, April 9th and Saturday, April 16th.

This year’s competition will be featured throughout on RPGTV, who also sponsor the classic. The classic is for 36 greyhounds @ €50, boasting a winner’s purse of €7,000. There will be a total prize fund of almost €15,000 on offer. The final is scheduled for Sunday, May 15th and entries close on Monday, April 18th at 5pm.

Those wishing to enter a greyhound for one of the trial sessions or indeed the classic itself, can contact Orlaith Farrelly on 086-8607636.
