New flat fixtures

NAVAN and Naas have been handed additional flat meetings. Navan will stage an afternoon card on Wednesday, June 6th, and Naas will host an evening card on Monday, June 18th. Shane Doyle of Horse Racing Ireland explained: “There have been big entries for flat races in recent weeks now the the ground has improved. The Naas card was needed in particular to accommodate a listed five-furlong race from Cork, where the sprint track is being upgraded but is not yet ready for racing. Both Naas and Navan also lost fixtures earlier in the year.”
