A number of units including Regular Gardaí and Road Garda officers attended and intercepted several sulkies accompanied by vehicles travelling in attendance.

The race was halted and a number of tickets for breach of National Public Health Guidelines (being outside the legal 5k limit) and various other traffic offences were issued.

In addition one horse, pictured above, was seized from its owner, when it was discovered to be unchipped and unlicensed.
