    Does anyone know why the big Hennessy meeting at Leopardstown is on a Saturday this year rather than the usual Sunday?

    Similarly, can anyone shed any light on the valuable St Leger Yearling Stakes being run at the York Ebor meeting rather than the Leger meeting?

    <br>They’re running the Hennessy on the Saturday to avoid a clash with the England v Ireland 6 Nations game.

    What a day’s racing that will be with Newbury as well!

    I believe the following day is the first ever rugby international at Croke Park (Ireland v France) which is the reason it’s been put back to Saturday.

    <br>Gus,

    The Sales race has moved because the sale has been brought forward to the last week of August.

    Not unreasonably, the sales company want the winners of the race to be in a position to spend their prize money on more yearlings, so the race has to be run before the sales.

    There’s a full PR explanation on the DBS website http://www.dbsauctions.com.

    Apologies for getting the fixture wrong, I knew it was something to do with rugger. Last weekend was great but Feb 10 promises to blow that away – <br> <br>- Aon – Kauto Star<br>- Game Spirit – Voy Por Ustedes, Well Chief, Ashley Brook & Foreman.<br>- Totesport Trophy<br>- 3m Novice – Denman

    – Irish Hennessy – Beef Or Salmon, The Listener, In Compliance, Hedgehunter

    <br>Just hope that they all turn up and the weather holds.

    As a matter of interest does anyone know if the point-to-point fixture which shows the Hennessy meeting on the big screen has been moved too?
