The Irish National Stud & Garden's Irish Racehorse Experience was officially presented with a Themed Entertainment Award (THEA) for outstanding achievement at an awards ceremony at Disneyland Resort, in Anaheim, California.
The award, which celebrates achievement and excellence within the themed entertainment industry, was collected by David Wardell, the Irish National Stud & Gardens Tourism Manager. The Living Legends, retired former racing champions that reside at the Kildare stud, will be paraded daily at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Apr. 25 through Friday, Apr. 28, to celebrate the honour. All pre-booked visitors during this period will be entered into a prize draw to win a Family Season Pass, offering unlimited entry throughout the year. The prize also includes an Irish National Stud & Gardens Hamper worth €500. In addition, a 20% discount on all general admission bookings between Wednesday, Apr. 19 and Friday, Apr. 28 will be applied for those visitors using the code THEA2023; and, once showing their ticket at the store, will enjoy 20% off all purchases. Please visit the Irish National Stud website for more information.
Cathal Beale, CEO of the Irish National Stud, said, “We are delighted to bring the THEA home to Ireland. The international recognition the award gives to the Irish Racehorse Experience is wonderful and it enhances our world class tourism offer. Horse racing and the Thoroughbred racehorse are an integral part of the tourism product in Ireland and the Irish Racehorse Experience brings this to life in an accessible, fun and imaginative way.”
