Leopardstown have announced Plusvital as the feature sponsor on June 13th with the equine supplement and genetic testing leaders sponsoring the feature race on the day; the Group 3 Plusvital Ballycorus Stakes, with a prize fund of €60,000 on offer.
Plusvital has been a leader in equine science since its formation in 1975, growing out of Ireland’s world-famous racing and sport horse tradition. Following the launch of the world’s first nutrigenomic supplement for horses, EnerGene-Q10, Plusvital has continued to focus on the development of equine genetic tests, innovative nutraceuticals and other integrated equine performance and health products, which aim to maximise the potential success of individual racehorses.
June 13th is the second evening meeting of the 2019 “Bulmers Live at Leopardstown” Series and features 90’s American Rapper Coolio providing after race entertainment on the night.[vc_single_image image=”8990″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center”]
Speaking about the announcement, Leopardstown Racecourse CEO Pat Keogh said; “We’re delighted to welcome Plusvital to Leopardstown as a title sponsor. Obviously we’ve admired their work, so it’s a real pleasure to have them on board for one of our Bulmers Live At Leopardstown evenings this year. These nights have a very broad appeal, not only from our own industry, but also from all around Dublin so it’s a perfect fit for Plusvital; leaders in their own industry and neighbours of ours in Dún Laoghaire.”
Also commenting on the announcement, Plusvital Sales Director Ciara Watt added; “We’re thrilled to develop this new relationship with Leopardstown Racecourse and jumped at the opportunity to sponsor the Group 3 Plusvital Ballycorus Stakes this year, which has been won by our customers for the last number of years. Partnerships like this one reaffirm Plusvital’s commitment to both the racing and bloodstock industries, while supporting our valued customers in achieving their goals. We wish all connections the very best of luck on the day.”
The launch of the Plusvital Ballycorus Stakes took place in Coolcullen, Co. Carlow at the yard of multiple Group winning owner, trainer and breeder Jim Bolger who has won the race six times in the past. Jim is a long-standing customer of Plusvital and was delighted to include Twilight Payment, fresh from his win in the Saval Beg Leymoss Stakes (Listed) in Leopardstown.
As well as the €60,000 prize fund for the Group 3 Plusvital Ballycorus Stakes, Plusvital will also provide a Speed Gene Test and a selection of their scientifically-based supplements for all the runners in their race on the day.
