Plusvital, return to sponsor the Trainers’ Championship for a second year at the Leopardstown Christmas Festival December 26-29 2022. In addition to sponsoring the Championship across the four days, Plusvital will sponsor the INH Flat Race on December 29.
The Plusvital Trainers’ Championship is awarded to the leading trainer of the four day Christmas festival, with trainers receiving points for their successes each day. The overall winning trainer will be awarded €1500 worth of Plusvital nutritional supplement and genetic testing products on the final day of racing. Last year’s Trainers’ Championship was awarded to Willie Mullins who had an outstanding Christmas Festival.
Additionally, to acknowledge their contribution to the Industry and to the Christmas Festival the grooms of the ‘Best Turned Out’ horses each day will be awarded a Plusvital equine care pack.
Speaking about the continued support of the Leopardstown Christmas Festival and the Plusvital Trainers’ Championship; Mike Shelly, CEO of Plusvital, said: “We are delighted to continue our partnership with Leopardstown Racecourse. The Christmas Festival is an integral part of both the racing calendar and the festive season here in Dublin. After being run behind closed doors last year, it will be wonderful to have crowds back on track this year. The racing and bloodstock industry are at the core of our business and we want to continue to support the industry that supports us. Irish National Hunt trainers continue to excel on the world stage and Plusvital are proud to be part of this Championship that recognise the talent and consistency of these trainers.’
Tim Husbands CEO of Leopardstown Racecourse commented: “We are looking forward to welcoming Plusvital back to support the Trainers Championship and sponsor the final race of the festival. Plusvital are showing huge support to the industry, and it is a lovely touch that they are also recognising grooms by providing a Plusvital Equine Care Pack to all winning ‘Best Turned Out’ grooms. Huge credit to the team at Plusvital for their continued support to Leopardstown and the industry.”
