The second edition of the Barney Curley Charity Cup will be held at Bellewstown next Wednesday | Suzanne Collins

The Barney Curley Charity Cup, featuring teams led by Frankie Dettori and Willie Mullins, will be held at Bellewstown on Wednesday, Sept. 27.

The racecourse has already raised over €200,000 for Curley's charity Direct Aid for Africa (DAFA), and the second edition of the contest will raise money for the charity. Each team consists of seven jockeys, who will go head-to-head over two races, sponsored by Gannon City Recovery & Recycling Services Limited and The Gallagher Group. Points will be awarded to the first six placed horses on a scale of 20, 10, 5, 3, 2, 1 and the team that accumulates the highest number of points across the two races in the challenge will win the Barney Curley Charity Cup. Dettori's team was victorious in 2022.

Alan Delany, Vice Chair of Bellewstown, said, “Frankie and Willie have assembled two amazing teams of riders which should make for a brilliant race day on Wednesday, Sept. 27. This is the second year of this very special event on our fixture list, all in honour of our great friend Barney Curley and to support his wonderful charity, Direct Aid for Africa (DAFA). With free entry for all, thanks to the National Bookmakers Association, we are expecting a big crowd through the gates which will make for fantastic atmosphere.”
