We Proudly Support

THE IRISH INJURED JOCKEYS FUND

As a business being part of Irish Racing is exciting and enjoyable but dosen't come without risk. We are proud to support the industry trade charity that cares for Injured Jockeys and helps them rehabilitate, for some its a long and painful haul. We support the charity in many ways, we donate, we organise events with the proceeds going directly to the fund and we also purchase IIJF products. This is our small way of paying back to the industry that we work in, and we are very proud to do so.

THE IRISH HORSE WELFARE TRUST

Without the equine stars we see each day at the races there would be no races at all. It is our stated aim as a businees to help care for the thoroughbreds that deliver top quality entertainment for us when their career on the track is over or for when they need help for any reason. The Irish Horse Welfare Trust has the excellent staff and facilities to do just that and we are delighted to donate a percentage of our profits each year to help them sustain and improve upon the fabulous work they do.
