KL Construction Helps Build Champion Jockey’s Career

KL Construction Helps Build Champion Jockey’s Career.

Capping off a wonderful season, 23 Year Old Colin Keane became Champion Jockey at Naas Racecourse yesterday. He had a;ready clinched the title at Dundalk last week with former champion Pat Smullen mathematically unable to surpass Keane’s win tally. At Naas yesterday, a double brought the Trim jockey’s tally to 100 and celebrations were nowhere more evident than in the corporate box of Colin’s personal sponsor KL Construction.

Karl Lyons, MD KL Construction: “We have been personal sponsors of Colin’s for the last two years and would like to think we have been an integral part of building this success. Like us, Colin is meticulous and professional and will no doubt go on to ever bigger successes in the future!”
