Eoghan O’Grady announced as Cork Racecourse Mallow manager

Cork Racecourse Mallow announced last Thursday the appointment of Eoghan O’Grady as Racecourse Manager, who takes up his new role with immediate effect as Andrew Hogan moves to Tipperary Racecourse ahead of a major redevelopment at the track.

A former amateur rider, Eoghan held a trainer’s licence from 2005 to December of last year and enjoyed notable success with the likes of 12-time winner Westerner Point, Mick The Jiver and On The Net.

Commenting on his appointment, Eoghan said, “With the support of the board of directors and the hard-working team here I am very much looking forward to this role. I am very grateful to Andrew Hogan for all his guidance since the start of the year and wish him well in future endeavours.”


Chairman of Cork Racecourse Mallow, Tom Gaffney, commented: “On behalf of my board colleagues, the management and support team, and our loyal customers, I wish to express gratitude to Andrew for his commitment, loyalty and vision for Cork Racecourse. His commitment was notable particularly during the Covid period, but also in the development of the seven-furlong track. We wish him continued success in delivering the plans for Tipperary Racecourse.

“We look forward to working with Eoghan as we seek to optimise the investment in the track and facilities by satisfying the enjoyment criteria of our existing and potential customers.”
