The annual Letterkenny Races, which takes place at the Big Isle Manor every year, returns this Sunday, July 18.
Donegal play at 1.45pm against Tyrone in the Ulster semi final so in order not to clash with that showdown organisers decided to put the race meeting back to 4pm to give people the chance living near the town time to get to the venue.
Racing did commence at Loughrea Galway on Sunday last and there wee local wins for Rathmullan owned and trained Kinnegar Boy and Make A Plan owned by the Gildeas of Correnagh.
Dylan Browne-McMonagle, who is making big strides on the big stage these days, also had some memorable days on board Unhinged and Five Stone Of Lead, but now we might just have another big name in the making at the local scene in Kian (Tubbs) McNally (pictured above), son of well-known trainer Ronan McNally.
Kian partnered both Unhinged and Five Stone Of Lead to success at the Galway venue on Sunday.
Note the change of start time with the first race at 4pm.
