THE GAL­WAY RACES, RTÉ ONE, THURS­DAY 2.05PM

A test of en­durance and the depth of a punter’s pocket this week as the seven-day Gal­way Fes­ti­val takes cen­tre stage of the Ir­ish rac­ing cal­en­dar.

The ac­tion com­menced on Mon­day and runs right through un­til Sun­day night with RTE pro­vid­ing cov­er­age.

The two big­gest races of the week are the Gal­way Plate on Wed­nes­day and the Guin­ness Gal­way Hur­dle Hand­i­cap on Thurs­day.

This is also Ladies Day when the fash­ion and style is al­most as im­por­tant as the on course rac­ing, with big prizes for the win­ners - both in the fash­ion stakes and rac­ing.

Ted Walsh and Robert Hall present live cov­er­age.
