For the second year the p2p bandwagon rolled on to the course located at Ballyvodock, Carrigtwohill for the United Hunt p2p. This race meeting is considered to be one of premier meetings on the southern circuit and was the venue for the last of the January 2016 ECCG shoots.
The course is a left handed galloping track with 6 races being run on the day covering two and half circuits over 9 furlongs distance per race, with a slight up-hill finish. On the whole, the event was well supported and attracted a huge crowd from the local area.
Once again this event enjoyed favourable weather conditions - cloudy skies but no rain - and while it was cold, the exciting races warmed up punters and non punters alike. ECCG members were treated to some exciting photo opportunities not being deterred by the cold element and mucky conditions. Some exciting images were captured from the parade ring and track on the day from all angles, to say the least, with some members braving taking shots from the ground level!
