Compas Stallions support four races on Naas flat season opener

Winning breeders of each race to receive a free nomination

One of Irelands most innovative Stud farms have committed to supporting Naas Racecourse again this season. Compas Stallions will sponsor four of the eight races on Naas’ opening flat meeting which will take place on Sunday 28th March.

Founder and owner of Compas Stallions, Micheál Orlandi will also recognise breeders by rewarding the winning breeder of each of his four sponsored races with a free nomination, to the named stallions of the race. The three handicap races and maiden race will be named after four stallions standing under the Compas Stallions banner including Cappella Sansevero, Smooth Daddy, Kuroshio and newest recruit at Compas Stallions Far Above.

Compas Stallions is growing from strength to strength and is established as one of Ireland’s leading Stud farms among Irish & UK breeders.

Owner and founder of Compas Stallions Micheal Orlandi commented: “We are delighted to be back sponsoring at Naas racecourse at the start of the 2021 flat season and in the midst of a very busy covering season. Sponsorship is pivotal, as owners are central to our wonderful sport. However, we also want to reward breeders, the backbone of this fantastic industry. Therefore we are providing a nomination to the winning breeder, of the named stallion race. We would like to wish the owners and all the connections, the very best of luck on Sunday."

General Manager of Naas Racecourse Eamonn McEvoy commented: “Micheál deserves great credit for his approach to getting mares through the gates of Starfield Stud. We are delighted to have Compas Stallions back sponsoring at Naas and the support in sponsoring half the card is hugely appreciated. It is fantastic to see Micheál rewarding four winning breeders with a free nomination to a Compas Stallion. I would love nothing more than to see Micheál strike with a couple of his young stallions and the great thing about this industry of ours is that it could well happen.”

The first of eight races will go to post at 1.15pm on Sunday 28th March and the fixture will be televised live on TG4. Entries for the fixture will close at 12noon with HRI on Tuesday 23rd March.
