It is fantastic to see the Tote expand their sponsorship portfolio and support across Irish racecourses. Last year the Tote sponsored more than 70 races, a huge boost to Irish racecourses.

We are delighted to offer half price admission tickets to those who present their Punchestown tickets at our turnstiles.  The Punchestown Festival is one of the best weeks for the national hunt racing industry and the people of Kildare, we hope they can kick start their week off at Naas and join us for the Tote Punchestown Preview Evening.”

Ross Kierans, General Manager of Tote Ireland - “We are very happy to continue our association with Naas Racecourse by sponsoring their Tote Punchestown Preview Evening card. It promises to be an enjoyable evening for racegoers and a great way to kick off one of the major weeks on the Irish Racing calendar. We encourage all of our account customers to visit to claim their race day tickets and to come along to Naas and join us for the evening. It is fitting to remember that our founding objective is to support Irish racing. I think our extensive sponsorship programme, Best Turned Out prizes, race day tickets initiative and engagement with racecourses demonstrates this support.”
