AN important date for your diary, Monday, September 13th (non-racing day), is that of the newly-named Pat Smullen Golf Classic in aid of the Drogheda Memorial Fund at Killeen Castle, Dunsany, Co Meath. The Drogheda Memorial Fund was set up for the permanent or temporary relief of trainers and riders who find themselves, due to circumstances beyond their control, in need of assistance.

It’s €1,000 per team of four (Stableford) (includes dinner), or sponsor a tee box for €150.
