Place your bets at the races

Before the races start at the Point to Point, the bookies are quiet. Signs and umbrellas and a few people.

I’ve only been to a few point to point or other horse races, but you can rely on there being bookies present to take your money.

I had a great time today at the Dawstown Point-to-Point horse racing event! The races started at 2 pm and continued until 4.30 pm, and I went with some of my buddies from the Blarney Photography Club. We positioned ourselves near the second last jump, and it was a super fun day filled with lots of action and photography opportunities. I’m excited to share this selection of my favourite shots with you!

Kian McNally wins at the Dingle Races on August 6th, 2022. Well done on your success, Kian!

They published a few videos of Kian after the race. In this one you can just about see me behind my camera two to three seconds into the video. Here’s an interview with him.
