We welcome our new sponsors, Lemongrass Fusion and we look forward to working with them throughout the season. Not only will we host the Horse Racing Ireland Flat Season Awards at the end of the season but we will have the Naas specific awards on the day also, it will make it that little bit more special.” Vincent O’Leary, of Lemongrass Fusion commented: “This week has been a huge week for us as we have launched our new brand Lemongrass Fusion and we will finish the week off in style at Naas Races this Sunday.
