TICKETS are now available for Horse Racing Ireland’s first equine welfare symposium at the Keadeen Hotel and Curragh Racecourse on Friday, May 24th.

Entitled ‘Changing stride - the way ahead for horse racing safety and care’, the event will feature a wide range of speakers and discussion panellists, focusing on veterinary and scientific innovation to protect and promote equine care and safety.

HRI’s John Osborne said: “Our first symposium will be an interactive conversation on safety and care. We are looking forward to hearing from our eminent speakers, pointing to so much exciting change in the way we care for our horses. Of equal importance is hearing the thoughts and opinions of our attendees.”

Tickets are €50 and include meals, refreshments on the day and entry to the Curragh Racecourse for an eight-race card to kick-start Tattersalls Irish Guineas weekend.
