Congratulations to Tim Hyde(6th Year) who rode his first Point to Point winner at the Nenagh races on Sunday 16th of February.
Tim's horse is aptly called Saint Benedict and is owned by his mother and grandmother.
St. Benedict is trained by Enda Bolger.
All going well, we will hope to see horse and rider combination at the Punchestown festival in May.
Well done to all concerned.

The History of Glenstal Abbey School
The word ‘Glenstal’ means ‘The Glen of the Stallion’, and is an English rendering of the Irish Gleann Stail. The glen itself is a very impressive geological feature, consisting of a mile-long valley, formed during the last ice-age, rich in many kinds of wild flowers.
