One of the new additions to the Shelbourne calendar is an Open Unraced stake and Derek Frehill yesterday confirmed the competition which boasts a €10,000 winner’s purse will start on the weekend of July 17th/18th.

Said Frehill of the event, “It’s brilliant to get such an event at HQ to kick start the careers of what is sure to be some amazing pups. We are used to seeing these type of greyhounds later in their careers but we generally don’t get to see them as novices in Shelbourne. I am really excited about this event and hope everyone gets right behind it and supports it with their unraced pups.”

Those looking to book trials, both public and private, at Shelbourne Park are reminded that they must be booked online through the igb.ie website.
