Two additional horse racing fixtures possible for Dundalk Stadium in 2019
The 2019 Fixture List for Irish racing was released today by Horse Racing Ireland with a further two summer fixtures to be allocated to Dundalk Stadium pending clarification over plans to replace the all-weather surface.
Should the two additional races proceed then the total fixtures nationwide will be 361, compared with 363 this year. The first horse racing meeting of the year in Dundalk is pencilled in for Friday January 4th and will be one of 36 meetings throughout the year.
Dundalk’s fixture schedule could be reduced if plans to replace the all-weather surface proceed.
Cognisant of the pressure in the industry around staffing, there will be an earlier finishing time of no later than 8.45pm for 10 months of the year, with an 8.30pm last race time at Dundalk in the first two months of the year.
All fixtures are subject to change
