Talking Horses: life’s a beach for 150th anniversary of Laytown races


Jamie Osborne has sent another strong team from his stable in Lambourn and has a host of fancied runners

Laytown races, the only official race meeting staged on a beach anywhere in Europe, will celebrate its 150th anniversary on Thursday afternoon with six races on a strand about 30 miles north of Dublin, and several of the prizes could be heading across the water as Jamie Osborne has sent another strong team from his stable in Lambourn.

Osborne has fancied runners in the first five races, and all run in the colours of the Melbourne 10 Syndicate, which pretty much exists to target this meeting above all others. It even sponsors the final race – the only one, strangely, in which it does not field a runner – and while its members watched half a dozen well-backed runners finish beaten at last year's meeting before finally celebrating a winner late on the card, they are unlikely to wait as long this time around.
