Galway Racecourse to partner with flat jockey Amy Jo Hayes

This year, as part of their Summer Festival line up, Galway Racecourse announced that they are partnering with flat jockey Amy Jo Hayes for 2024. The team at Galway Racecourse love to showcase and champion new ideas and talent for their iconic Summer Festival that takes place from Monday 29 July to Sunday 4 August.

Hailing from Tipperary, Amy Jo Hayes will be part of the Ballybrit team in the build-up to and during the seven-day Festival.

Commenting on this new partnership, Chief Executive of Galway Racecourse Michael Moloney said: “We have such a strong army of loyal passionate fans we wanted to bring them deeper into our sport and offer them fun content direct from within our industry. We saw Amy Jo Hayes win her Horse Racing Ireland ‘Ride of the Year Award’ last year and had been following her journey. She is a very impressive hard-working jockey and what better way to showcase her journey than through the lens of Irelands largest horse racing festival.”

Amy Jo Hayes expressed her excitement at the new partnership: “I am absolutely delighted to be part of the Ballybrit Galway races team. It is an honour to be associated with such an exhilarating race week at the Galway festival.
