Donkeys for top jockeys

THEY may be more accustomed to gracing Ireland's top thoroughbreds, but that won't stop top jockeys Paul and Nina Carberry from racing on the humble donkey at this year's Galway Races.

The brother and sister team are to join fellow riders Davy Condon, David Russell and Alan Cawley in the Donkey Derby at the premier horseracing event.

The fun-filled derby will be a feature at the Galway Greyhound track on July 28.
