POMPADOUR HOSTS THREE NATIONS CUP
Thanks to an introduction by Emma Santer, Manager of Folkestone Racecourse to Francis Delord, President of Pompadour Racecourse which is twinned with Folkestone, this Sunday sees the inaugural running of the Three Nations Cup with representatives from Ireland, France and Great Britain’s amateur jockey associations taking part.
John Dawson, Josh Hamer and Miles Seston represent Great Britain, Andrew Doyle, Richard Harding and Roger Quinland represent Ireland and Patrick Pailhes and Jean-Philippe Boisgontier represent France in the eight runner hurdle. There is currently a heatwave in Pompadour and so they have done well to have this many runners declared with temperatures in the high 30s.
The return match will be held at Ludlow on 11th November and in Ireland at the end of the year. Good luck to Team GB!
