The Mid Antrim Hunt is busy preparing for its Autumn point-to-point meeting at the usual venue of the Higgins Estate at Moneyglass near Toomebridge this Saturday, September 28.
The Hunt is very grateful to the race sponsors, Dennison Commercials, McBurney Transport, Gortgill Service Station, Enviro Care NI, Convery Trailers, and also to Topping Meats for sponsoring the Best Turned Out, the Mr Barry Gibson for the Race Reader, and Wilsons Auctions for the Formcard.
They would also like to thank the many businesses who advertise in the race card and sponsor fences.
Dennison Commercials have been faithfully sponsoring the race for 4 year old maidens for many years, and McBurney Transport who have been great supporters of the point-to-point are on this occasion sponsoring the 5 year old and upward mares’ race.
Gortgill Service Station of Roguery Road, Toome who sponsored a race a year ago are putting their name to the maiden race for 5 & 6 year old geldings and new sponsors, Enviro Care NI are sponsoring the Open race for 4 year olds plus. Another faithful supporter Convery Trailers, will be sponsoring the 7 year old plus geldings race.
Local jockey William Thompson who rides for Ian Ferguson will be hoping to be busy at his home point-to-point and will hopefully add a few winners to his tally to start off the Autumn season.
First race is at 1pm.
