What is Clonmel Racecourse Famous For?
Clonmel Races have been held at Powerstown Park since the early 19th century. A scenic track with a committed following, Clonmel stages 12 fixtures from September to June with just one flat meeting in April.
Clonmel Racecourse also hosts the world famous annual National Hare Coursing Meeting in early February with 30,000 enthusiasts turning up over the three days.
Track Specifics at Clonmel Racecourse
Clonmel is a right-handed undulating 10-furlong (2000m) oval with a stiff uphill run-in of two and a half furlongs (500m). The turns are fairly sharp with speedy prominent runners favoured although softer ground brings stamina into play on the run-in. The home turn is downhill enabling horses to freewheel before the finish. The penultimate fence, coming at the end of that downhill run, can be tricky.
Flat races are limited to trips from 10 furlongs to two miles (3200m) and a low draw saving ground on the turn out of the home straight is beneficial.
Biggest Meetings at Clonmel Racecourse
The Grade 2 Clonmel Oil Chase is the track's feature held on the middle Thursday of November. Run over two and a half miles (4000m), it is often contested by Ireland's best steeplechasers with Doran's Pride claiming four consecutive wins from 1997-2000.
Edredon Bleu was the last victorious English raider in 2003 with subsequent winners including War of Attrition, Sizing Europe and Kemboy.
