Leopardstown Receives €12 million Boost
Leopardstown is set to invest €12 million into racecourse facilities during 2016/17, reports the Irish Times. The investment includes a €4.7m grant from Horse Racing Ireland bringing the total funding for the redevelopment to €20m, following work carried out this year. "Leopardstown has been consistently improving its facilities over recent years and further improvements will be evident to racegoers at the forthcoming Christmas Festival," chief executive of Horse Racing Ireland Brian Kavanagh said. "This final phase of work will mean that all of Leopardstown's facilities will have been upgraded over a five year period as befits the home of some of our best national hunt fixtures and the Longines Irish Champions Weekend."
