Race fixture alterations for December 2020

Wednesday, October 07, 2020

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 fixture

c) 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 period.
