Elena the horse from the Cromwellstown Stables in Kilteel looked like she was getting a taste for the black stuff when she joined jockey Robbie Power and model Aoife McGrane last Friday to launch the Osprey Hotel's Punchestown entertainment line-up.
There will be expert racing tips each day before the races at a brunch with Power and Leon Blanche of Boylesports, plus a complimentary shuttle bus back to the Naas hotel each day from the track.
There will be live music at the venue each night of Punchestown week, with the lively Manila Strings trio, House Party and DJs on the Friday night of the festival.
