Horse Racing Ireland (HRI) will return to the 2016 National Ploughing Championships with an interactive HRI marquee. It will be hosted by At The Races presenters Matt Chapman and Kevin O’Ryan who will interview top trainers and jockeys every day with lots of competitions and racing ticket giveaways to many of Ireland’s 26 racecourses.
Visitors to the marquee will see R.A.C.E. (Racing Academy and Centre of Education) give horse simulator demonstrations, allowing members of the public to experience what it is like to ride a racehorse and gain an understanding of the career opportunities in the racing industry.
The 2016 National Ploughing Champtionship takes place all week in Tullamore.
