Ballybrit was the setting for a bevy of beauties (all classic thoroughbreds, doncha know) to enjoy the Galway Races courtesy of Classic Resorts & Emirates. Jacinta Mc Glynn (Senior Reporter Travelbiz) joined Fiona Dobbyn (Classic Resorts) and Helena Sweeney (Emirates) in the salubrious Hurdle Suite of the Killanin Stand to watch the gee gees running and have the odd little flutter as well! A lovely lunch with flowing beverage (soft drinks all the way ‘cos the ground was hard due to the recent drought!) marked the fabulous hospitality of our hosts.

 

From our vantage point in the exclusive Killanin Stand, uninterrupted views of the race course spread below. We tortured the tote and scooped loads of loot (well, if you believe that……). Whoa, steady on. There was absolutely no horsing around. Behaviour was impeccable, glamour and style stunning. Bets were cast, race cards flaunted, winnings collected (my horse is still galloping around), and it was all good sport. Galway Girl, you showed your colours at the races with Classic Resorts & Emirates and guests in attendance. Giddy Up!
