In conjunction with the Irish EBF Ballyhane S., Naas Racecourse has partnered with Barretstown, a children's charity, which has been severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. A JustGiving page has been set up here and Naas is requesting minimum donations of €5. Each donation will be placed in a draw-to be held on July 30–and assigned one of 24 horses in the €300,000 Irish EBF Ballyhane S. on Aug. 2. The fundraiser will close on Juy 28 at noon. The person assigned to the winning horse will receive a €5,000 holiday voucher from Hannon Travel. Barretstown's mission is to rebuild the lives of children affected by serious illness and their families through life changing therapeutic recreation programmes in a safe, fun and supportive environment.

Caroline Tobin, Corporate Account Manager of Barretstown, commented, “We are incredibly lucky to have the support of Naas Racecourse, the Irish EBF and Ballyhane Stud and we are delighted to be the recipient of the funds raised from the €5,000 holiday voucher draw.”
