Fermanagh Harriers Point-to-Point 2009

As usual the Fermanagh Harriers held their annual point-to-point races at Necarne just outside Enniskillen. It's been a long time since I'd been to horse races of any sort and had never been to this point-to-point meet. Unfortunately conditions weren't ideal, it had rained heavily for a few days prior to the meet and the weather on the day was likely to tempt people to stay indoors instead. In the end though everything went off without a hitch and it turned out to be a historic day for point-to-point racing as jockey Derek O'Connor rode his 100th winner, the first ever point-to-point jockey to do some, you can read a bit about it here http://www.irish-point-to-point.com/news.asp?key=6998 . In another noteworthy achievement local trainer David Christie has his 100th winner since moving to his yard at Derryglin.

Of course I was only there to see what photo's I could take so follow this link to see what I took http://www.skynet.ie/~seanmc/gallery/NecarneP2P09
