TRAMORE Racecourse has announced that its newly upgraded Grade 3 chase on New Year’s Day will be sponsored by Savills Ireland for the next three years.
The chase has been attracting an increasingly better class of horse in recent years with previous winners Bachasson, Champagne West and most notably last year’s Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Al Boom.

Speaking at the sponsorship announcement, Angus Potterton, Savills Ireland Managing Director, said: “The feature race on New Years Day at Tramore was our first venture into racing sponsorship two years ago. There is a great holiday atmosphere on the day and the crowds are always huge.”
Owen Byrne, General Manager of Tramore racecourse, said they were thrilled that Savills Ireland have chosen to extend their sponsorship.
“Our New Year’s Day fixture has been a firm favourite in the South East’s social calendar for many years,” he said. “We hope to build on that success.”
