IN each of the last two years Wexford has seen major changes, while improvement work continues apace. Two furlongs were added to the track and the direction of racing changed from right to left in early 2015. Irrigation has also been updated and this, together with a programme of track widening, allows for fresh ground to be utilised on a regular basis.

The needs of horses and humans are well catered for too. Stabling has been greatly improved and increased in recent years, while the jockey’s and valet’s area was also extended and upgraded.
