Lawlor’s Of Naas Grade 1 Novice Hurdle Day transferred

Wednesday 13th January


The track is unfit for racing due to frost. Lawlor’s of Naas Grade 1 Novice Hurdle Day was transferred to today, Wednesday 13th January.

This is our flagship race meeting in our calendar and what a day of racing it is! The feature race is the Lawlor’s Of Naas Town Centre Hotel Novice Hurdle of €80,000 and we will have six smashing supporting races. Not only is it the first Grade 1 national hunt race of the year in the Irish calendar but also our only Grade 1 race.  Last year we saw the unbeaten Envoi Allen take the prize and we are looking forward to seeing more star’s at Naas this January. 

We continue to race behind closed doors in line with government guidelines. Visit hri.ie to view  COVID 19 protocols that are currently in place.

Sponsors on the day

We are delighted that once again our biggest race day of the year is in partnership with local businesses in Naas town. We are very grateful to all our sponsor’s for their continued support.

This year will be the 7th consecutive year for  Lawlor’s of Naas Town Centre Hotel to sponsor our Grade 1 feature race. 2021 will be an exciting year for Lawlor’s Hotel as they are due to open their new extension in the second quarter of the year. The large new extension will introduce a fabulous collection of dining experiences as well as Lawlor’s Ballroom and Conference suite. Naas is getting somewhere new to celebrate, meet, dine and stay. Lawlor’s will also have new workspaces and flexible boardrooms, a great combination with excellent dining options in one place.

Lawlor’s decadent afternoon tea menu is in development for the new Tea Lounge and all day dining Lobby. A new wedding venue and gardens will open later in the year, the ballroom will have a capacity for up to 550. The hotel’s new state of the art conference facilities will have futureproofed Wi-Fi and streaming facilities complemented by a suite of Syndicate rooms to add flexibility to your event.

Naas-based fishmongers East Coast Seafood and Gouldings Hardware will once again co – sponsor the East Coast Seafood & Gouldings Hardware Handicap Steeplechase on the card.  The final race of the day will also be sponsored by local business Rushe’s Supervalu, who will continue to sponsor the Rushe’s SuperValu INH Flat Race.

Irish racing’s biggest sponsor The Irish EBF will sponsor the remaining three races on the card. Sponsorship from further afield on the day comes from prominent horse racing supporter JP McManus who will sponsor the Adare Manor Opportunity Handicap Hurdle.
