Due to the continuing spell of wet weather which has led to a series of fixture cancellations, Horse Racing Ireland has today announced two new fixtures.

 

The Curragh is rescheduled for next Saturday, April 20 as the Flat meeting at Limerick on this day is cancelled. This meeting replaces the April 6 meeting at the Curragh will feature The Alleged Stakes (Group 3). Entries for this meeting will close by noon next Tuesday, April 16 with declarations to run to be made by 10am on Thursday, April 18. 

 

As the Curragh is also scheduled for Sunday, April 21, this will now become a two-day meeting with seven races programmed on each day. To facilitate this, the Irish Stallion Farms EBF 3-Y-O Maiden is deleted from the Sunday card and is transferred to the Saturday card.

 

In addition, Navan will now stage an all-Flat card on Tuesday, May 7. This meeting will replace the Navan meeting which was originally scheduled for Tuesday, April 9. Entries for this meeting will close by noon on Thursday, May 2 with declarations to run to be made by 10am on Sunday, May 5.

 

Full details of the programme of races for both meetings will be published on the RAS website in due course.
