Hurlers and Horses, the annual Club Deise fundraiser, takes place this year at Tramore Races on Friday 2nd June. This event has developed into one of the biggest fundraisers for Club Deise in training our county teams and with Waterford senior hurling team management and players in attendance promises to even bigger and better this year.
Speaking at the launch at Waterford horse trainer Pat Flynn’s Gallops in Rathgormack, Waterford senior hurling manager Derek McGrath said “Club Deise’s initiative, drive but more importantly their vision has enabled us to prepare in the best possible manner over the last number of years. The fusion between Sue and those involved in Tramore Racecourse with the committee of Club Deise will ensure not alone a great day’s racing and entertainment, but will act as a vehicle and a catalyst to give us our best possible chance to prepare with diligence and professionalism”.
