A change of date at Down Royal in December has been announced this afternoon
Horse Racing Ireland has announced the following
alterations to race fixtures for December 2020:- a)
The Dundalk Meetings scheduled for Wednesday,
December2 and Wednesday,
December16 will now both be run as
afternoon meetings (originally scheduled as evening meetings) b) Navan Saturday, December19 will now transfer to Friday
afternoon, December18 - this switch is to avoid a
clash with the All Ireland Senior Football Final in Croke Park which is
scheduled for Saturday, December 19 (the Hurling Final on Sunday, December 13
is already a blank racing day). Dundalk are also set to race on Friday,
December 18 but as an evening meeting, so there will be no direct clash with
the rescheduled Navan fixturec) Down Royal Saturday, December 26 will now transfer to Thursday, December17
– this switch is to reduce the number of fixtures on St Stephen’s Day from
three to two given the absence of crowds, thereby maximising broadcast coverage
for the meeting and reducing industry staffing issues over the busy Christmas
