Sunday 8th of November Clarina Equestrian Centre hosted a charity ride and auction in aid of injured jockey J.T. McNamara. The day was a huge sucess with over 100 riders participating and more than €15,000 being raised. The Centre’s owner Mary McCarthy said :”J.T. made a day very special for me when he rode my first winner of a point to point. Ifelt it was now my turn to help and do something for him, so i decided that through the riding school we could organise a charity ride. All my students were more than willing to help out.” Niall Gilligan played auctioneer for the evening and topping the auction was a training trip to Shane Carey’s European base. “I would just like to say thank you to all who helped make this such a successful day,said Mary McCarthy” -The Irish Field.
