Thyestes Day gets underway in Gowran Park

Eighteen runners will go to post at 3pm

The Thyestes Chase over three miles is the feature at Gowran Park this afternoon.

18 runners will go to post at 3pm.

The first on the card is off at 12.45.

Here’s the full race card…

Gowran Park General Manager Eddie Scally says they have huge plans throughout 2020 for the racecourse.

He told KCLR “The entrance area we have started a planting system, putting in a lot of trees there at the moment and people will see that starting on Thyestes Day”.

“We have a signed a new contract with Boylesports to take over our SP shop so that’s been fully kitted out at the moment, and then I suppose the biggest project that’s going to be coming on, but we are looking at maybe early to mid-March during the Cheltenham Festival around that time, looking at re-roofing the main stand, and once that stand is re-roofed we are going to start redeveloping below the stand so the facilities there, the self-service restaurant, the ground floor bar, all of them are going to be getting a facelift”.
