BBC Coast Laytown Races January 2008
There’s something quite spectacular about seeing horses racing on the beach.
Racing horses is an old tradition and in Laytown there has been a race since 1867. Once a year people flock here for the last remaining beach race under Jockey Club rules.
Miranda Krestovnikoff of BBC Coast meets local trainer and racer Marcus Callaghan and has a bit of a flutter. But the odds are hard to calculate as the horses are used to performing on turf and not sand. So outsiders are in with a chance.
But horses aren’t the only thing being gambled on. Each year the course is built from scratch on Laytown’s huge beach, will the organisers win their race against the tide?
