Leading National Hunt Jockey Ruby Walsh says that Thyestes Chase day maintaining it’s tradition as a midweek meeting has made it the centre of attention.
Speaking to KCLR ahead of next weeks event in Gowran Park, Ruby says that Thyestes day is a huge event beyond the local area….
“It’s been a lucky race for us”
“Dad (Ted Walsh) trained his first winner in 91 when Roc De Prince won it”
“I was lucky enough to ride the winner of it on Djakadam a few years ago, but the Thyestes is a huge part of Racing tradition and it’s a huge social day out in the Kilkenny, Carlow, South Leinster area, it’s maintained it’s status as a midweek meeting so it’s the centre of attention so it’s a great day out”
