Key Accounts Manager at BETDAQ Betting Exchange, Greg Walker, said: “We are lucky in Ireland to have some of the world’s most talented riders, who put their bodies on the line every day for the sport we all love.

“At BETDAQ, we are delighted to be able to host this event. It will not only raise awareness and money for the Irish Injured Jockeys, but it will be fascinating to see these racing legends test their mettle on the links.”

General Manager of Irish Injured Jockeys, Michael Higgins, said: “We are delighted that Greg and his team at BETDAQ continue to show their support for us at Irish Injured Jockeys with another new event and we hope its success will lead to a bi-annual renewal like it’s similarly named but far less prestigious USA v Europe match. We look forward to a great day at The Heritage with some very competitive jockeys turned golfers.”
