Bumper Card at Boughrood


This year has seen an increased number of entries for the largest one day Harness Racing fixture in Mid Wales. Boughrood Races will host a bumper 15 race card on Sunday 20th August with over 140 horses taking part at the picturesque track at Boughrood Court Farm Nr Llyswen.
This could be down to this year’s fixture boasting increased prize money with Maidens horses winning £400 up to the winner of the Boughrood Classic Final taking home £2000. The committee have also arranged for each winner to take home a DVD of the days racing as an extra memento of the meeting.
The Boughrood Classic Final will have 5 hotly contested heats with the first 2 from each heat going through to the final. Recent local winners wanting to make their presence known will be Lakeside Paddy and top Trainer from 2016 David Bevan and Llwyns Delight winner of the top heat at last year’s fixture.
The Ladies Race that was introduced last year has attracted 10 runners and if last year was anything to go by the ladies will be all out to win. Last year’s winners Julie Phillips and Woodstone Jingo do battle once again as well as Landa Dreams who is owned by the Preston family who have kindly sponsored the race.
Finally, we could not run such a meeting without all of our Sponsors and helpers throughout the year, so a massive thank you to you all.
And don’t forget we have Behind Bars, catering, ice cream and book makers all in attendance.
See you all on Sunday 20th First Race 1pm. Declarations 11.45am, Qualifiers 12.15pm
