The organisers of the Owners’ Pony and Young Riders Show are aiming to celebrate raising €250,000 for charity at the Green Glens, Millstreet this weekend. The venue has been home to the event for 14 of its 26 years and spokesman Keith Griffin said its popularity had not dimmed.
“Entries seem to be on target, and we are close to 3,000 again. The recession is hitting people now, but we are very happy with the response. Over the years, we have raised a total of €240,000 for charity. We made €10,000 last year and if we do the same this year, I will be very happy,” he said. [Read the full article on the Examiner]

Millstreet Horse Show returns to the international stage next week after a 12-year hiatus, with its popularity as strong as ever.
Boasting a prizefund upwards of €200,000, nine international classes, three Rolex ranking contests and competitions in every grade imaginable, unmatched facilities, not to mention the famed Green Glens atmosphere, it is no surprise to hear that families are travelling from the four provinces, complemented by competitors from seven nations.
“We have 1,200 stables booked out and we are still short. It is close to uncontrollable,” said Noel C Duggan yesterday.
“We have riders from seven nations, if not eight, for example Britain, France, Italy, Canada and Denmark. This is the only three-star international show in Ireland and there will be more entries at this show than in any four-star show in Europe.” …. this is an extract from a much longer article in today’s Irish Examiner

Well done to Willie O’Leary whose horse Clara More landed The Mallow Print Handicap Hurdle tonight at Cork Racecourse, attracting morning support to move from 33/1 to an SP of 12/1. The seven-year-old son of Luso, who had bottom weight in the handicap, travelled well and picked up the lead two out. He quickened away after the last under Adrian Heskin to win by two and three parts from Frankie Flowers who set off in pursuit coming to the last, but made no further headway at 8/1.
Local trainer Eoghan O’Grady has Clara More and he said: “Unfortunately the owner Willie O’Leary couldn’t make it tonight. He’s from Millstreet, Co Cork and his claim to fame is that in 1963 he recorded the highest personal score against Kerry in a 60 minute Munster final.
“Clara More may go to Killarney next Thursday for a similar handicap. He won a point-to-point in the spring and he jumps well so continue reading…
