They will also present €100 to the groom in charge of the winning horse and horse judge to be best turned out in their three races.
Anthony Kaminskas of AK Bets commented
“AK Bets are delighted to be associated with The Curragh and are hoping our Summer Series is targeted by trainers who can scoop up some loot for their hardworking staff. As a bookmaker we’re trying to go back to the way bookmaking was 15 years ago with decent bets laid at good prices whilst providing a level of service the bigger operators are unwilling to match. We have a call centre for off-course bets opening soon and don’t forget to look out for our AK Bets pitches on Irish racecourses this year.”
Evan Arkwright, The Curragh’s Racing and Sponsorship Manager said,
“We appreciate the support of AK Bets and look forward to welcoming Anthony and David to our betting ring for the first time this year. We will work closely with them to help drive plenty of business their way over our 23 race days.”
Bernard Caldwell, Chairman of the Irish Stable Staff Association
“We are very grateful to AK Bets for proactively supporting stable staff this year, their contribution will mean a lot to our members”
