Where is Dundalk Racecourse?

What is Dundalk Racecourse Famous For?
Dundalk Race Track opened in 1889 and staged predominantly National Hunt until its closure in 2001. Work started on a new floodlit complex on the same site, Dundalk Stadium, to host greyhound and all-weather flat racing with the former opening in 2003.
In August 2007, Dundalk staged Ireland's first all-weather meeting on its Polytrack surface. It now holds 36 meetings from September to May with the majority on Friday evenings followed by greyhounds and music until late. It is very much a social venue and affectionately dubbed 'Fundalk'.
Track Specifics at Dundalk Racecourse
Dundalk is a left-handed flat 11-furlong (2200m) American-style oval with sweeping bends. There are chutes for five-furlong (1000m) and one mile (1600m) starts.
Regarded as a fair track, the introduction of a cutaway rail at the end of the home turn in December 2013 improved racing further by creating less congestion on the inside. A low draw is generally an advantage while the track was resurfaced in 2020.
Biggest Meetings at Dundalk Racecourse
Friday evenings are the track's staples with two Group 3 races - the Diamond Stakes over a mile and a half (2400m) in late September, and October's Mercury Stakes over five furlongs – attracting strong fields. There are also qualifiers for the All-Weather Championships with Finals Day held on Good Friday at Lingfield in England. The track's popular Ladies Day is held in mid-July.
