GAIN Equine Nutrition are delighted to announce our new title sponsorship of the first meeting at Cork Racecourse, Mallow for the 2021 season.

The partnership will see the GAIN Equine Nutrition race day take place on 2 January with a card of seven races, which includes the Handicap Hurdle, Handicap Chase and Novice Chases throughout the day.

‘Morosini’ was the victor in the feature race of the meeting in 2020 winning the Handicap Hurdle for jockey Mark Walsh and trainer Mrs. Jessica Harrington. This year, the GAIN Equine Nutrition Handicap Hurdle will hold a purse of €25,000 and will attract some top national hunt horses to the meeting.

Andrew Hogan, General Manager Cork Racecourse Mallow said: “In these challenging times we are thrilled to welcome GAIN as sponsors of the inaugural GAIN Equine Nutrition Race day in January 2021. GAIN have been long time major sponsors of the racing sector and we are very excited to collaborate with them for the opening fixture of the year.”

Joanne Hurley, Irish Country Manager, GAIN Equine Nutrition, commented; “We are delighted to partner with Cork Racecourse for the opening meeting of the New Year.

National hunt breeding and racing is so important to rural Ireland and we are thrilled to be able to support our trainers and bloodstock customers within this sector of the industry. We wish all connections the very best of luck”
