Additional 2015 Fixture at Tipperary Racecourse Additional Fixture 

Horse Racing Ireland has allocated six additional fixtures on a one-off basis for 2015 to provide opportunities at times when there is the greatest demand from the horse population.

Tipperary – Friday 17th April (NH)
Wexford  – Tuesday 21th April (NH)
Navan – Saturday 30th May (Flat)
Cork – Thursday 24th September (Flat)
Curragh – Tuesday 13thOctober (Flat)
Gowran Park – Tuesday 20th October (Flat)

Announcing these additional fixtures and the changes of date/code to existing fixtures, Jason Morris, Director of Racing, commented:  “The HRI Fixtures Committee has identified appropriate slots in April/May for National Hunt and September/October for the Flat, when field sizes are expected to be higher than the current Irish average of 11 runners per race. Approximately half the Irish racecourses applied for these additional meetings and the ones selected were those offering the greatest variety of race distances and highest safety limits, whilst also taking into account the ability of the tracks to accommodate additional meetings based on their existing fixture allocations. HRI is particularly pleased to be providing additional Flat races at a number of high-class turf courses (the Curragh, Cork, Gowran Park, Naas and Navan) towards the end of the flat season in September and October, as this has been a specific request of the Trainers Association.”
