The annual League of Ireland Mascot Race took place at Naas Race course on Sunday and it was our own Harper who showed the others a clean pair of heels to seize victory.
Harper lined up with Leo the Lion (Limerick), Collee the Dog (UCD), Stevie Capall (Kildare County), Rocky the Seagull (Bray Wanderers), Terry the Tiger (Galway United), Bilberry the Goat (Waterford), Corky the Cheetah (Cork City) and Longford Lion (Longford Town).
It was Rocky the Seagull who provided the stiffest challenge, but Harper kept his head to surge home to glory. All entrants are collecting money to support mental health charity Aware- to honour Harper's achievement why not donate a fiver to to this worthy cause today via the link below.
