AT the recent meeting in Wexford on Friday, July 28th, Wexford Racecourse collaborated with the Farmers Kitchen Hotel, owned by Billy Devereux, who presented each winning owner on the day with a voucher for accommodation including breakfast and dinner for two to be used anytime.

Michael Murphy, Wexford Racecourse manager, commented that owners are the central drivers of racing and this sponsorship is a gesture of appreciation added to the usual mementos presented to owners at Wexford. Maybe other hotels and hospitality outlets would think of doing something similar.
