Tipperary Racecourse will have a fulltime manger following some changes announced today by Cork Racecourse and Horse Racing Ireland.
The current manager Andrew Hogan who has been at the helm of both venues since 2016 will be returning to Tipperary Racecourse on a full time basis.
Cork will commence a recruitment process to find Andrew’s replacement and in the interim Andrew will continue to have general responsibility for both tracks.
Mr Hogan said that upcoming developments at Tipperary meant that he could not give the Cork track the attention it deserves.
He will be leading the development of an all-weather racetrack at the Tipperary venue. During his time at the Cork venue he oversaw the development of a new world class seven-furlong straight course and improved attendances.
The planning application for the all-weather racetrack at Tipperary has been submitted to Tipperary County Council – reference number 22456.
Submissions close on August 8th and a decision is due on August 29th – the new facility will see the venue operate all year round with an estimated twenty additional meetings.
