THE start of a new racing year at Wexford, one of just a pair of Irish racecourses to offer jump racing only, kicks off on St Patrick’s Day, March 17th with news of a major new sponsor for the venue. The new deal sees Shamrock Farm Enterprises join the list of sponsors and part of their sponsorship deal is quite innovative.

Richard Caplice, sales director of Shamrock Farm Enterprises, said: “We have been supplying seaweed minerals and seaweed fertiliser to stud farms and racecourses for over 25 years. In October 2018 we approached Wexford Racecourse Supporters Club with a view to becoming one of their main sponsors for 2019.
