Bar One Racing announced as Leinster National sponsor at Naas

Naas Racecourse announced Bar One Racing as the new title sponsor of the Leinster National race in a five-year partnership. Alongside sponsoring the feature BARONERACING.COM Leinster National Handicap Chase of €80,000 on March 14th, the independent bookmakers will also sponsor the six supporting races on the card, including two Grade 3 races.

The Louth based company is one of Ireland’s leading independent bookmakers and recognised as a huge supporter to Irish racing. In 2020 Bar One Racing increased their race sponsorship portfolio which has been extended with the five-year Leinster National sponsorship at the County Kildare track.

Barney O’Hare, Company Director of Bar One Racing, said: “We are excited to announce our sponsorship of the Bar One Racing Leinster National and we are keen to see the race day grow over the next five years. With two Grade 3’s on the programme, the meeting will attract a strong supporting card. It's the final Irish meeting before Cheltenham and racing fans will be keen to get their expenses! Naas racecourse is a top-class facility and we look forward to seeing racegoers return when restrictions are removed."

Eamonn McEvoy, General Manager of Naas Racecourse, commented on the announcement: “We are delighted to welcome Barney O’Hare and the Bar One Racing brand to Naas Racecourse. It has been a pleasure to work with Barney and we look forward to the days when we can have Barney, his team and Bar One Racing customers on site to enjoy great racing at Naas in the near future.

“Bar One Racing are also gearing up for the Cheltenham Festival which takes place two days after the Leinster National and the offers they are putting up for grabs will certainly excite racing punters., Leinster National day is a brilliant race day which will be made  all the better now that we have gained a new long-term sponsor. I would like to thank Barney for an exciting partnering with Naas Racecourse.”

The Bar One Racing Leinster National Day takes place on Sunday March 14th. The early entries for the BARONERACING.COM Leinster National will be released on March 1st. To find out more information and to view all seven races on the card visit
