Finlay Volvo Cars & Curragh Racecourse

This year marks the fourth year of the car partnership between Finlay Volvo Cars and The Curragh Racecourse.

We joined up to be official car partners with The Curragh Racecourse back in 2015.

This year more than ever is a very exciting year to be involved with the Curragh Racecourse, as it is the opening of their brand new €81 million redevelopment, which only reopened in May.

We believe this partnership is one that works well for us, and one we are very proud of. Both organisations have a long-standing history in the county of Kildare & being able to associate our Volvo brand with such a great organisation is an honour to Finlay’s.

Although all race meetings throughout the year are very exciting for us, Derby weekend is the one that we look forward to every year.

The difference with Derby weekend and other meetings throughout the year is that we sponsor a race. This year our race, ‘FINLAY VOLVO CARS SUMMER FILLIES HANDICAP’, was held on Friday of Derby Weekend. It was a great race with lots of great trainers and jockeys involved.

The race was won by Crafty Madam on the day which was ridden by Niall McCullagh, and trained by K J Condon.

As well as sponsoring a race we enjoy the day at the races along with some of our loyal customers, staff and David Thomas, Managing Director of Volvo Ireland.

It is always a wonderful day out and one in which everyone of our guests thoroughly enjoys.

We look forward too many more race meetings this season and into the future.
