Michael Murphy – Chairman
Thank you for your continuing support of Wexford Races and for taking the time to visit our website.
Bettyville Park is strongly supported by locals and visitors alike. All share in the friendly atmosphere that is a day at the races in the sunny South-East at one of the finest tracks in the country. If you have yet to be converted to the thrill of the races, we would encourage you to select Wexford as your sample choice. For action packed racing and excitement on and off the track, Bettyville is the place to go!
Wexford has a rich racing culture that continues to flourish; a wonderful mixture of sporting and social intercourse where the friendship and warmth of welcome transcends all boundaries.
The racecourse has been developed in stages and is now one of the finest tracks of its kind in Ireland with the constant support of leading trainers and jockeys both nationally and internationally. While the track is primarily favoured for its jumping fixtures, the best stables run their horses in the competitive flat racing programmes during the summer months. On the social side, there are many bars and restaurants, mobile food outlets, a betting shop, on-course bookmakers and Tote facilities.
Families are particularly popular at Bettyville Park and always welcome, with regular attractions for children like bouncy castles, children’s entertainers, face painting, etc. We often run fashion events and special promotions that attract many high-profile celebrities to the circuit. Racing at Wexford is about much more than horse racing. Like any great occasion, there are the ancillaries that mould the whole package into an experience that inspires friendship and relaxation in an environment that is pleasant and family friendly. Unlike other sports, a day at the races offers periods between races where people can converse, meet old friends and have time for a chat or share in a drink at the bar, whilst getting a slice of amazing action on the track.
At Wexford, we are proud of our racing tradition and those who pass through our turnstiles, the sponsors and owners, trainers and jockeys are the reason why Wexford Races is growing in popularity.
Why not come and join us now for a great day out! A warm Wexford welcome awaits.
Michael J. Murphy
