Equilux to sponsor Race Day at The Curragh
The Curragh is delighted to announce that Equilux have agreed to a multiple race sponsorship package for the first time. The Equilux Race Day, taking place on 15th October, will feature a mix of competitive handicaps and maidens.
The Equilux Performance Lighting system is a fully automated intelligent lighting system used by many of the world’s leading stud farms and training yards and is specifically designed to maximise health, growth and performance in horses. Developed by Sam Murphy who has worked in the racing industry since he was 15 years old, the system harnesses all the benefits of natural daylight for the stabled horse.
Sam Murphy CEO of Equilux commented,
“Equilux is delighted to team up with our local track for the Equilux raceday. We are happy to be able to help in these difficult times by giving back to support the industry, in particular to support an initiative that will help to benefit owners and maintain prizemoney which is vital, particularly at the lower end of the scale. I feel that every individual and company who derive an income from racing and breeding has a part to play in keeping our place on the world stage in what is a very difficult time”.
Evan Arkwright Racing and Sponsorship Manager, The Curragh commented,
“We really appreciate the support by Equilux of The Curragh especially as it has been such a tough and challenging year for companies. I hope the race day will be the start for them of a long term association with the racecourse and will generate national and international profile for Sam and his team to showcase their business and ultimately attract new customers.”
The race day also features the Listed TRM Waterford Testimonial Stakes
