Al Shira'aa Racing To Sponsor Irish EBF Oaks Trial At Naas


Even So (pink) wins the Listed Irish EBF Oaks Trial S. | Naas Racecourse

Al Shira'aa Racing, headed by Sheikha Fatima Bint Hazza Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, will sponsor the Listed Al Shira'aa Racing Irish EBF Oaks Trial at Naas Racecourse on Wednesday, June 22. Prize-money for the 10-furlong contest will be increased to €52,500.

Kieran Lalor, General Manager of Al Shira'aa Racing, said, “When Eamonn [McEvoy] approached us with the opportunity to sponsor the Oaks Trial, the boss was delighted to get on board, especially with the fact that the race, in a relatively short period of time, has already translated into Oaks success with the Ger Lyons-trained Even So (Ire) (Camelot {GB}).

“It is an important feature on the calendar and is always very competitive. It's proven now if your filly can win this race, she can win the Oaks, so this is also a target we have for our own racing stable. It is a good opportunity to support Irish racing and these Classic distances are our primary focus at Al Shira'aa Racing.”
