Club 30 members event
On July 26th 2018 Leopardstown hosted an exclusive evening for their Club 30 members with extended invitations to both The Go Racing Student society and HRI 2018 Interns. The action Packed evening consisted of some light drinks and nibbles hosted by The Racing Post's Mark Boylan. Club 30 participants had the opportunity to gain an insightful knowledge of racing syndication with guest speaker Dean Walker creative director of Gordon Elliot Racing. The combination of thrilling horse racing and live music from the Bulmer’s live Festival provided the makings of a fantastic evening out. Leopardstown would like to extend their thanks to their Club30 members and all those involved in creating such a successful evening.
You will be glad to hear that we have received a grant from Horse Racing Ireland under the Racecourse Development Scheme to complete the redevelopment of Leopardstown. It is our intention to create a facility up to best international standard, in keeping with the first stage which has been very well received.
We had hoped to commence this development earlier but we had to obtain Planning Permission and this has taken longer than we had anticipated. We hope to have a contractor on site immediately after the Longines Irish Champions Weekend next September.
Last week we commenced the tender process to engage a contractor. The development will include, a new facility under the Grandstand, a new Saddling Area at the Southern end of the site, a Children’s Playground with indoor and outdoor facilities, a new Weighing Room on the far side of the Parade Ring close to the current Ballyogan Entrance, a new entrance beside the existing Ballyogan Entrance and a number of other improvements around the racecourse.
As part of these works, we will be building a new toilet facility beside the Members Bar. We know that the current facility beside the Members Bar is not up to standard and we look forward to completing the new facility as quickly as possible. I attach an artist’s impression of the new toilet facility.
Early in the New Year we will have an exhibition of all the new facilities and we will share these with the Members as soon as they are available. - Pat Keogh CEO Leopardstown Racecourse and Golf Centre
