St. Stephen’s Day, Leopardstown

Leopardstown, St Stephen's day 13 014

The horses going out for the 3rd race in the chill December sunshine

St Stephens Day racing in Leopardstown has a special feel, even more so when Aidan O’Brien says hello

There is the top class racing, serious racegoers looking to make a few euros and check out the form for Cheltenham in March. The roar from the stands is back, haven’t heard that in five years

It’s also a glue-pot  for the young, gorgeous – glamour is everywhere. You see them struggling up the drive in their platforms

Ridiculously dressed (undressed) for a day in December, great anticipation, excitement though

Its early in the day, yet you see a lot of the guys already with drink in hand making their way in.

T here’s a  heap of cans and bottles at the entrance, taken off them as they go in.

What shape will they be in later? Well able to talk to the girls? I doubt it

They don’t need drink, they’re smashing looking fellas

Silly really
