There will be three special guests at Kilkenny Greyhound Stadium this evening, 2 champions from the canine world and 1 very recent champion from the equine world.
US Grand National champion “Hewick” and his trainer Shark Hanlon will be joined by the Irish Greyhound Derby champion “Born Warrior” and the Oaks heroine “Raha Mofo”.
The trio will be paraded in front of the appreciative stands but there is also a wonderful card to look forward to.
Some very nice sorts are likely to emerge in the opening round of the Burgess Kennels ON2 525, while the second round of the valuable Deadly Kennels A2 is the feature.
1st race, as always, gets underway at 7.30 pm
