TRAMORE Racecourse is to get an extra fixture next year.
The meeting, set for July 8, is one of seven additional fixtures that have been added to the Irish racing calendar in 2020.
The others are Cork (July 24), The Curragh (September 26), Kilbeggan (July 10), Listowel (May 30), Naas (August 23) and Sligo (October 23).
Next year’s fixture list also sees changes to the Curragh’s Derby Festival, reverting to the traditional Friday to Sunday schedule. The Irish Grand National meeting also changes for the first time to a Saturday to Monday schedule.
Listowel’s seven-day Harvest Festival 2020 will begin on September 20 to avoid a clash with the National Ploughing Championships.
The Curragh fixture list sees a number of changes to its 2019 schedule. These include reverting to its traditional earlier start date for the year on March 29. The opening and closing race meetings of the flat turf season will be run at Naas on March 22 and November 1.
