FREE admission to the Curragh Racecourse on August 12th
On track bookmakers sponsor FREE admission to Keeneland Phoenix Stakes Day at the Curragh on August 12th
The Curragh Racecourse has teamed up with the Irish National Professional Bookmakers Association to offer free admission to attend the Group 1 Keeneland Phoenix Stakes Day on Saturday 12th August.
Admission to this 8-race card will be free and racegoers will be able to enjoy Group 1 action on the track and a range of family entertainment off it. This exciting initiative will both reward existing fans of the sport and attract new customers to enjoy the redeveloped Curragh facilities.
Ray Mulvaney, Chairman of the Irish National Professional Bookmakers Association said:
“The Curragh is making good progress this year and we are keen not only to support them, but also to reward our own customers through this sponsorship. The Keeneland Phoenix Stakes is always a high-quality race and the Curragh has lined up a range of activities for racegoers to ensure a great day for all the family.”
The Curragh’s Chief Executive Brian Kavanagh commented:
“We are very grateful for the support of the Irish National Professional Bookmakers Association and look forward to a super day on August 12th. We have already enjoyed some excellent racing at the Curragh this year and this promotion is a great way to kick start the second half of our season.
The Keeneland Phoenix Stakes consistently attracts some of the highest rated juveniles in training with horses such as Bucanero Fuerte, Givemethebeatboys, River Tiber, Porta Fortuna and Valiant Force among the entries.
The support programme features the Group 3 Rathasker Phoenix Sprint and ARC American Racing Channel Race, together with races sponsored by Bord Na Mona Recycling, Sheehy Motor Group, Keepers Heart Whiskey, QuinnBet and Revamp Conservation and Restoration.
In addition to a high quality eight race programme, other attractions on the day will include the Moyglare Kids Zone with free activities throughout the afternoon for younger racegoers.
