Dullingham Park is the new sponsor of the G2 Clipper Mile on the first day of the Irish Champions Festival at Leopardstown on Sept. 9, Leopardstown Racecourse announced on Thursday.

One of Newmarket's oldest establishments, Dullingham Park has recently been renovated and expanded as part of owner Steve Parkin's Clipper Group. The one-mile race was upgraded to Group 2 status in 2014, and has been won in the past by Parkin's Space Traveller (GB) (Bated Breath {GB}), who now stands at stud at Ballyhane Stud in Ireland.

Ollie Fowlston, Managing Director of Dullingham Park, said, “This is a wonderful opportunity to be involved in such a prestigious race meeting, it is a race that Steve Parkin has a close affinity with due to him owning past winners Suedois and Space Traveller. Dullingham Park is a new venture and we look forward to welcoming visitors from both Ireland and the UK. Irish Champions Festival is a remarkable meeting and we could not be more thrilled to support one of the biggest days in the Irish racing calendar.”

Tim Husbands, CEO of Leopardstown Racecourse, added, “We are delighted to welcome Dullingham Park to Leopardstown as sponsor of the G2 Dullingham Park S. Steve Parkin has had a long and successful association with Irish Champions Festival as an owner and sponsor and we are thrilled that he has chosen this elite racing festival to showcase his new stud farm.”
