McCann FitzGerald lined up for Leopardstown

Law firm McCann FitzGerald LLP has been named as the new sponsor at one of the main races on the card at the Dublin Racing Festival at Leopardstown next month.

The law firm will sponsor the Grade 1 Spring Juvenile Hurdle on Saturday 3 February.

Participants in the race, which has a prize fund of €150,000, often go on to run in the Triumph Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival in March.

‘Vibrant’ industry

The Dublin Racing Festival is a two-day event that takes place on Saturday 3 February and Sunday 4 February.

Stephen Holst (managing partner McCann FitzGerald LLP) described the Irish horse-racing industry as “world renowned, a significant contributor to our economy, and an important fabric of Irish society”.

“We are delighted to be working in partnership with Leopardstown to lend our support to the growth of this vibrant industry,” he concluded.
