A GREAT result for all concerned, as in conjunction with the Irish EBF and Ballyhane Stud, Naas Racecourse partnered with their local children’s charity Barretstown to run a special initiative and racing fans responded with typical generosity.

A JustGiving page was set up to raise funds for Barretstown, those who donated a minimum of €5 were placed into a draw to be in a chance to win a holiday of a lifetime. A total of 24 donators were drawn and assigned a horse in the €300,000 Irish EBF Ballyhane Stakes, the richest race at Naas Racecourse which took place on Monday, August 2nd.
