The charm and uniqueness of Laytown Races was probably best captured by seeing jump jockeys Rachael Blackmore, Jack Kennedy, Seán Flanagan and Darragh O’Keeffe lined up for rides on Ireland’s only beach track.

Flanagan was all smiles after coming out on top of a tight battle with champion apprentice Dylan Browne McMonagle, joking afterwards about not looking too agricultural in that closing furlong alongside one of the Flat game’s rising stars. That’s the vibe. There is prizemoney and there is betting. But it feels like a carnival, a fun day.
