Sherry FitzGerald Country Homes is to become a sponsor of horse racing when it joins the portfolio of sponsors at the Curragh Racecourse for the first time this year.

They will be adding their name to a race during the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby Festival on the last weekend in June.

The competitive handicap will take place on Sunday 27th June as part of a high-quality programme, which features the Group 1 Alwasmiyah Pretty Polly Stakes, Group 2 Airlie Stud Stakes, Group 2 Comer Group International Curragh Cup and Paddy Power Rockingham Handicap.

“We are thrilled to have an involvement with The Curragh racecourse and sponsor a race during the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby Festival,” said Roseanne De Vere Hunt, Head of Sherry FitzGerald Country Homes.

“We look forward to working closely and building a strong relationship with The Curragh leading up this event.”

“We are delighted to welcome Ireland’s leading estate agents to The Curragh and look forward to working closely with them to build their association with the racecourse,” added Evan Arkwright, Racing and Sponsorship Manager, The Curragh.

The Curragh published an economic report last month which valued the contribution of the racecourse and 1,500 acres of training grounds as being €100 million to the local area and supportive of over 1,000 jobs.

Juddmonte International and Kerrygold have been added among others as new sponsors in the past year.


The LGFA, Camogie Association, TG4, Lidl and Littlewoods are among more than 250+ members of the Sport for Business network of sporting and business organisations working together across a number of key areas.
