TIME, a leader in greyhound feed & nutrition, is thrilled to announce a significant sponsorship deal for a series of top greyhound races throughout 2024. The sponsorship includes prestigious events such as the TIME Cesarewitch in Mullingar, The TIME Select Stakes in Waterford, The TIME Juvenile Derby in Shelbourne Park, and the newly created A4 TIME Greyhound Derby to be hosted in Limerick Greyhound Stadium. This sponsorship represents TIME’s commitment to supporting the Irish greyhound racing industry and investing in the development of high-profile events.

The highlight of the sponsorship is the newly created A4 Greyhound Derby, which will feature a remarkable first-place prize of €20,000. The total prize money for the sponsored races over the year will exceed €100,000, further enhancing the competitiveness and prestige of these events.

These events will complement the successful TIME Cork Cup, recently concluded at Curraheen Park Greyhound Stadium, and solidify TIME’s dedication to fostering excellence within Irish greyhound racing. TIME also plans to announce a series of smaller events around the country to benefit other venues throughout the coming months.

Willie Rigney, representative of TIME, expressed his delight at the opportunity to invest in Irish greyhound racing, stating, “We are thrilled to partner with these prestigious events and contribute to the growth and success of greyhound racing in Ireland.”

Tim Lucey, CEO of Greyhound Racing Ireland, commended TIME for their support of the industry and their commitment to enhancing the calendar of fantastic events. “TIME’s sponsorship will elevate the stature of these races and provide a platform for showcasing the exceptional talent within the Irish greyhound racing community,” said Lucey.

TIME looks forward to an exciting year of competition and collaboration with Greyhound Racing Ireland and the participating racetracks. The company remains committed to promoting the welfare and performance of greyhounds through its high-quality feed products and continued support for the sport.
