Naas Neighbours Strengthen Partnership on Festival Weekend

Naas Racecourse is proud to welcome Naas Racecourse Business Club member, RFL Steels Limited, to the sponsorship ranks as they assume sponsorship of the new-to-Naas Listed Waterford Testimonial Stakes. The now-named RFL Steels Stakes will be the feature race on Day 1 of the Oktoberfest Weekend at Naas Racecourse which takes place on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 October.

The month will mark RFL Steels Limited celebrating 30 years in their current location in Naas and the sponsorship at their local track will be part of the company’s celebrations. Fittingly runners will be jumping off from the six-furlong start, a stone’s throw from the RFL Steels Limited offices on Fishery Lane.

RFL Steels Limited commenced trading in 1987. They have an extensive network and strong relationships with mills, suppliers, and traders globally.  Serving the construction, industrial, engineering, and agricultural sectors, they have grown their portfolio to over 500 customers in Ireland, becoming one of the largest and most reliable steel stockholders in the country.  They pride themselves on strong customer service and reliability.

Rory Larkin, Managing Director of RFL Steels Limited, commented: “RFL Steels Limited is honoured to have the opportunity to sponsor this race here at Naas. Our business has successfully traded from premises adjacent to the racecourse for the past thirty years.  Given the close proximity, this is a wonderful occasion to celebrate the success of both ventures”

Eamonn McEvoy, General Manager of Naas Racecourse, added: “Delighted to have a new local sponsor in the shape of RFL Steels Limited. Rory Larkin is a massive sponsor in the local community here in Naas and it is hugely appreciated. Rory is a well-known owner in the Irish racing world and he is a great supporter of the industry.”
