2015 Irish Greyhound Derby *MEGA THREAD*

The launch of the 2015 BoyleSports Irish Greyhound Derby has taken place, with 2014 winner Laughil Blake taking centre stage, as details of the 2015 edition of the race were announced.

The Irish Greyhound Derby has been running since 1928, receiving Classic status in 1932, with current big race sponsors BoyleSports coming on board in 2014, to partner one of the longest running races on the Irish Greyhound racing calendar.

This will be BoyleSports second year sponsoring the race after signing up in 2014, continuing a successful relationship with Shelbourne Park over a number of years, that has witnessed the company support the Champion Stakes and the Race of Champions in Tralee.
This year’s event will carry a massive prize fund of €240,000, and will take place in Shelbourne Park, Dublin on Saturday September 19th. The winner will pocket €125,000 and the Irish Derby trophy, with the runner up receiving €22,500, third €12,500, while the three unplaced finishers will each receive €7,500.

There will be eighteen qualifying Trials taking place nationwide, sixteen in the Republic of Ireland, and two in Northern Ireland. The first round heats will kick off on Thursday August 13th and Saturday August 15th, followed by second round heats on August 20th and August 22nd. The third round heats will take place on August 29th, with the quarter-final and semi-final stages happening on September 5th and September 12th respectively.

The 2015 Irish Greyhound Derby Final will take place on September 19th, and will be broadcast live on RTE Television from 8.00pm on the evening of the race.

Speaking at the launch, Phil Meaney, Chairman of the IGB said,
“The continued support of BoyleSports for our blue riband event is a marvellous vote of confidence in the sport of greyhound racing. We are looking forward to another thrilling competition culminating in what can only be described as the best night on the racing calendar – Saturday September 19th in Shelbourne Park Greyhound Stadium – The Final of the BoyleSports Irish Greyhound Derby.” link


Leon Blanche, Mrs Purcell and Ciaran Whelan.

Limerick’s Ballyana Foxtrot in hunt for Irish Derby



BALLYANA Foxtrot is now destined for a shot at the BoyleSports Irish Greyhound Derby after winning his 2015 Derby Trial Stakes at Limerick Greyhound Stadium on Saturday July 25th. The BoyleSports Irish Greyhound Derby is the most prestigious race in the Irish Greyhound Calendar and boasts a prize-fund of €240,000.

Limerick Greyhound Stadium’s representative will now progress to the first round heats of the BoyleSports Irish Greyhound Derby, which begin on Thursday 13th August in Shelbourne Park Greyhound Stadium in Dublin. The Final of this highly anticipated event will take place on Saturday 19th September 2015 and is broadcast live on RTE 2. For the most up-to-date information on the progress through the rounds daily updates can be read on igb.

The total prize fund for the BoyleSports Irish Greyhound Derby 2015 is €240,000. Of the €240,000 the winner will receive €125,000 and a commemorative trophy. Under the Irish Greyhound Board’s innovative prize money scheme, the breeder of the winner will receive €12,500 (10% of the winner’s prize) and if the winner is trained by a licensed public trainer he or she will also receive €12,500 (10% of the winner’s prize). The Retired Greyhound Trust will benefit to the tune of €2,500.

It is now hoped that 144 names will go into the drum this morning for the first round draw in the BoyleSports Irish Derby.

The draw is due to be made in the Oaks Suite at Shelbourne at 11am.
There was a flood of entries over the weekend with the anticipated 120 entry rising up to the 144 mark.
There will be a few veterinary checks to make prior to the draw and it is hoped that the figure will settle at 144 which would allow for 24 heats with twelve to be run on Thursday and the remaining twelve on Saturday. Four would then qualify from all heats to make for 96 runners in the second round.
Defending champion Laughil Blake is in the list and so is likely to go off favourite to become the first dog since three-time winner Spanish Battleship to successfully defend his title.
Trainer Graham Holland has the biggest team with fifteen entries while PJ Fahy is the leading owner with eight.
