The Tramore Racing Festival gets underway at the Seaside resort on Thursday (August 17th).
The four day festival includes three consecutive evening meetings, with Saturday featuring a Style evening, and events end with a family-fun afternoon on Sunday.
There will be 28 races in all over the four days with prize-money on offer of €380,000.
General Manager Sue Phelan says the racecourse’s ongoing €1million refurbishment will be showcased to the approximately 20,000 expected for the Festival.

Boyle Sports has invested significant funds in the on course bookies and we’ve added a new, online ticketing system, www.tramore-racecourse.com .After the Festival, work starts on the new entrance building, stable yard and more.”
