FBD Sponsors Racing Series

FBD Hotels & Resorts will be the inaugural sponsor of the Saturday Series at The Curragh, which takes place across four Saturdays, 10th, 17th, 24th and 31st in August.

This initiative will feature top class racing, music and family entertainment over the month, and each week one hotel within the FBD Hotels & Resorts portfolio will partner the event and sponsor a race. The schedule is as follows:

There will be a party atmosphere each Saturday of the Series, featuring an afternoon of racing starting at 1.45pm with a race card of 8 races, the last at 5.30pm. There will be entertainment for all the family with a choice of food and drink options and the opportunity to win luxury weekends away to your choice of FBD hotels. A kid’s zone will be in place with free activities for younger racegoers.

David Kelly, CEO of FBD Hotels & Resorts, said: "We have been a long term partner of The Curragh, and last year we partnered with them for the Orby Stakes. We are delighted to extend our sponsorship to the Saturday Series for 2024 and beyond."
