Rang 5 attended ‘Go Racing Kids’ Club’ event in Fairyhouse on Wednesday 9th March.
The horse racing industry is one in which Ireland is a world leader. The aim of the day was to educate the younger generation about horse racing and show them what happens behind the scenes at the races, as well as making them feel part of their local racecourse.
Among the activities on the day, the students met and spoke with a jockey and a racehorse trainer. Representatives from R.A.C.E (Racing Academy & Centre of Education) were present with their racehorse simulator and the Racecourse Manager took the students out on the track where they walked part of the track.
