GAIN Mares Series 2017/2018

GAIN Mares Series 2017/2018

GAIN Equine Nutrition are delighted to sponsor the GAIN Mares Series again this coming 2017/2018 point to point season which kicks off with the Tipp Foxhounds Lisronagh point to point on Saturday October 28th.  The Series has been running for almost 3 decades and covers 20 legs in 7 counties with the much coveted final taking place in Ballynoe in the Spring.

Colin Bowe’s yard in Kiltealy provided the beautiful backdrop for this year’s launch, Colin who was crowned Champion Handler last year with 32 winners is sure to be very competitive again this season.  At the launch Joanne Hurley Irish Country Manager commented “Many of our valued customers raise and race horses for the point to point market and we are proud to support this valuable sector of the Industry through the GAIN Mares Series”

GAIN along with the Ballynoe Point-to-Point committee will provide a €3,000 bonus for the winner of the final along with a half-tonne of GAIN Equine Nutrition feed for both second and third place in the race.  The 2017 Final saw the Declan Queally trained ‘My Old Gold’ claim the title along with the valuable bonus.

 

We hope this series will give the owners of mares a real boost and encourage more people to buy and race mares in the future.  This partnership demonstrates our commitment and support to the grass roots sector of the industry; we wish all connections the best of luck in the season ahead.
