The bookmaker has been the main backer of the race since 2014 and this extension will bring the partnership up to ten years.
The 2020 renewal of the €500,000 BoyleSports Irish Grand National which also marks the 150th anniversary of the race, is the centrepiece of the three-day Easter Festival at the County Meath track.
This year’s Easter Festival runs from Saturday, April 11 to Monday, April 13 and the BoyleSports Irish Grand National will go to post at 5 pm on Easter Monday. The race will be broadcast live on RTÉ whose coverage of live racing is sponsored by Boylesports.
“BoyleSports are really proud to sponsor such a prestigious and valuable race on the Irish sporting calendar and with a pot of €500,000 up for grabs at Fairyhouse on Easter Monday, we’re going to relish what is certain to be another very competitive renewal,” said Leon Blanche Head of Communications at Boylesports.
“As a company, we pride ourselves on our continued commitment to Irish racing and with this four-year deal taking us up to 10 years as the main sponsor of such an iconic race, we can look forward with vigour to some thrilling contests in the showpiece event on the Irish National Hunt calendar.”
“We are delighted to continue our partnership with BoyleSports, especially for the 150th anniversary of the race,” added Peter Roe, General Manager of Fairyhouse Racecourse.
“The BoyleSports Irish Grand National is a truly iconic Irish sporting event with such a long and illustrious history so we are thrilled to work with an indigenous and innovative Irish brand such as BoyleSports who have been involved in the betting industry for over three decades from their base in Dundalk.”
“We have exciting plans to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the BoyleSports Irish Grand National over the entire three days of our Easter Festival and we look forward to working with BoyleSports to deliver a very special racing and social experience for all our customers.”
