On the back of their tremendous success Formahoof have enhanced and extended their sponsorship with Tramore racecourse for 2021. The deal will see FormaHoof sponsor all 77 best turned-out prizes for grooms in 2021 as well as sponsoring three races at Tramore.
FormaHoof is a breakthrough non-invasive and reusable 3D-mould system that is revolutionising the way we care for our horses’ hooves. Approved to be used in training and racing by several Racing Authorities, including The British Horseracing Authority (BHA), FormaHoof is the most technically advanced hoof care system in the world. Offering a highly effective and easy to apply solution to every hoof care challenge, FormaHoof rebalances, repair’s and protects the hoof, for enhanced performance and the long-term soundness of the horse.
On the partnership, Alexander Papantoniou, CEO of FormaHoof commented:
“We are delighted to extend and continue our support of Tramore Racecourse. Given our racing connections Tramore racecourse is the perfect collaboration for us. We are very keen to support local industry and events and we are thrilled to be sponsoring the best turned our prizes, league and three races in 2021. Our mission is to help farriers, owners, vet’s and trainers maintain healthy and sound horses so sponsoring the best turned out prizes is a perfect fit for us.”
Owen Byrne, General Manager of Tramore Racecourse added:
“We are delighted with the extension of our sponsorship partnership with FormaHoof. They really are to be commended for their support during these difficult time for racecourses. The grooms who look after the horses are the backbone of this industry, so it is fantastic to see their hard work being recognised. The horses racing with us are always beautifully turned out and with an incentive of €1,000 to the yard with the best turned out prizes in the year I am sure there will be even more effort put into the horse’s appearance.”
Bernard Caldwell, CEO of the Irish Stable Staff Association said:
“It’s a great show of recognition from Tramore Racecourse and FormaHoof for the Irish Stable Staff. The prize of €1,000 to the yard who wins the most best-turned outs at Tramore, is a great way to reward all the grooms that work very hard throughout the year to have their horses looking beautifully presented in the parade ring”
