Everything you need as the week-long Galway festival starts this evening
A truly mixed day of racing with both codes catered for and the first day of the week-long Galway summer festival encompassing the Flat and jumps.
Two hurdle races to start and a bumper to finish wrap round four on the Flat as Galway begins with an evening meeting.
