The Irish Rover and Klampenborg Galopbane’s Irish Day at the Races – the one day of the year when the racecourse literally “Goes Green!” The thoroughbred has always been close to the hearts of the Irish people, so it’s no surprise that this day is fast becoming one of the biggest events of the year at the racetrack. Bringing a little Irish flavour to the races was race commentator Annette Lennon, who came from Stockholm to liven up the day with her individual style of race calling.
