Brian Kavanagh, CEO of The Curragh Racecourse, commented: “We are all looking forward to a thrilling renewal of Longines Irish Champions weekend and to welcoming everyone to The Curragh for day two on Sunday September 11. The Curragh will host four Group One races, including the final Irish Classic of the season - the Comer Group International Irish St Leger. Together, with Leopardstown, we will see the crème de la crème of European runners and riders descending on both tracks over the course of the weekend. Thanks to the support of Moyglare Stud, we will have a fabulous line-up of entertainment to accompany the racing including Allie Sherlock who stops crowds of people in their tracks when she takes to Grafton Street with her guitar each weekend. We have been building up to this day throughout the season and I have no doubt it will be a resounding success for both tracks.”
