Raceday set for injured jockeys fund; charity.

LIMERICK Racecourse has launched a raceday in aid of the Jockeys Emergency Fund.

The event will be held on October 14 and will see an Irish v UK Jump Jockeys Challenge and a Jump Jockeys v Flat Jockeys Challenge.

Chief of Horse Racing Ireland Brian Kavanagh said: "We urge everyone, both racing supporters and those within the industry, to contribute in any way they can to the fundraising raceday at Limerick on October 14.

"The serious injuries suffered by Limerick jockey JT McNamara and Antrim jockey Jonjo Bright were a stark reminder of the risks jockeys face every day."
