It was a wonderful night's entertainment enjoyed immensely by all. Colourful names for the horses included 100% Beef, Hoof Hearted, Bob's Nag and Austerity, while jockeys on board the horses included Horse Box, What's His Name, Mr. Troika and Plank O `Wood.

Ten races went to the post and the final race was an auction where punters had the chance to bid for the past and present greats of horses' legends; Shergar, Red Rum, Arkle and Desert Orchid etc all lined up with Sea of the Stars the first past the finishing line. provided the expertise on night and thanks to them for their professionalism. Huge thanks to all who sponsored races, advertisements and raffle prizes. To the fundraising committee, staff, students and parents who bought and sold horses, volunteered on the night and helped out in any way, we are very grateful.

To our main sponsors; Denis & June Murphy of Costcutters, Masseytown and to Norah and Noel Naughton, we are indebted to your generosity.
