Strong card for Saturday Wexford races

By Dan Walsh

For the second Saturday in succession racing action takes place at Bettyville Park tomorrow, but sadly no spectators are permitted to attend on this occasion, as the fixture is run ‘behind closed doors’ under Government Covid-19 restriction guidelines.
