Sligo Races to show Rovers game on big screen

The August Sligo Races festival continues on Thursday with Ladies day.

A seven-race national hunt card begins at 5pm.

Race organisers have also confirmed that Sligo Rovers Europa Conference League tie against Viking FK of Norway will be shown live on the big screen from 6pm during the racing so that racegoers can keep an eye on how the bit o’red are getting on.

Wednesday’s flat meeting at Sligo saw jockey Mikey Sheehy land a 54/1 double as he rode Corky to victory in the feature race, the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Connacht Oaks Fillies Handicap – as well as guiding Your Honor to victory earlier in the evening in the Sligo Champion Handicap for trainer James Nash.
