Joe took a somewhat unorthodox route into the industry, having had jobs in a Metal Fabrications factory, Accident Repair Centre and Fleet Car Sales office prior to joining myracing. An avid sports fan, he has had an obsession with Horse Racing for as long as he can remember.

The coronavirus outbreak has caused the BHA to cancel all fixtures in Britain until at least the end of April, but Horse Racing Ireland have made the decision to continue to race behind closed doors for the immediate future.

Wednesday’s meeting discussed the protocols put in place by the Irish government – including the restriction of public gatherings – and the decision was made to continue with the current closed-doors situation, albeit with amendments to the fixture list, as to comply with the new restriction that no more than one meeting will be allowed to take place each day.

Below is the amended fixture list for the next eleven days.

Friday 20th – Dundalk (afternoon)

 

Saturday 21st – Thurles

 

Sunday 22nd – Downpatrick

 

Monday 23rd – Naas (from Sunday March 22nd)

 

Tuesday 24th – Clonmel

 

Wednesday 25th – Dundalk (afternoon) (from Friday March 27th)

 

Thursday 26th – Cork

 

Friday 27th – Navan (from Saturday March 28th)

 

Saturday 28th – Curragh (from Sunday March 29th)

 

Sunday 29th – Limerick
